Disability council tax relief

If you have adapted your main home to meet the needs of a disabled person who lives there 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.

After you apply we will arrange a visit so that we can confirm the details of your application.

If your application is confirmed then your council tax bill will be reduced to the next band down.
