If someone living at your address is permanently disabled, you might be able to get a discount on your council tax.
One of the following must apply for a discount to be granted:
- the disabled person uses a wheelchair indoors
- the property has a second bathroom or kitchen for the use of the person with the disability
- a room in the property is used for a special purpose, for example, dialysis
Things like stairlifts, handrails and other fixtures on their own do not qualify for the reduction.
Apply for a discount
If a reduction is granted, the council tax for the property will be charged at the rate of the band below it.
Example: if the property is at band C then the council tax payable will be at a band B rate. A reduction is also available for band A properties.
