Apply for council tax disability relief

If you have adapted your home to meet the needs of a disabled person who lives there, and he or she is permanently and substantially disabled, we may be able to reduce your council tax bill.

To get disability relief the property must have at least one of the following features:

  • an extra bathroom or kitchen needed for the disabled person
  • a room other than a bathroom, kitchen or toilet which the disabled person needs and uses
  • enough floor space indoors to allow the use of a wheelchair which is needed for the disabled person.
