Disabled Reduction

A discount may apply if the property has been adapted for a disabled person (adult or child).

Do I qualify?

You can apply for a disabled reduction if the person with the disability lives in the property as their main home.

The property must have one of the following:

  • a room used by the disabled person for a special reason, for example, dialysis equipment (not a bathroom, kitchen or toilet)
  • an extra bathroom or kitchen for the use of the disabled person
  • extra floor space inside for the disabled person to use a wheelchair. Wheelchairs for outside use only are excluded.


How much will I save?

If you qualify, the Council tax for the property will be charged at the rate of one valuation band lower. For example, if your property is in band C you will pay the Council Tax for band B. Properties in band A can still get a reduction.
