Disabled persons relief
It may be possible to have your Council Tax bill reduced if a disabled person lives in your dwelling and has one of the following features:
- A room which is not a bathroom, kitchen or lavatory and the disabled person is the main user of the room and it is essential for the disabled person's needs;
- An additional bathroom or kitchen which is required for meeting the needs of the disabled person;
- Additional floor space to permit the use of a wheelchair which is required for meeting the needs of the disabled person.
If you are granted a disabled person's reduction, the charge for Council Tax will be at one band lower than the band shown on the Valuation List. If your property is already in Band A (the lowest) you will be entitled to a reduction equal to 1/9 the charge of the Band D level.
