Council tax discounts

Residents with disabilities

If you, or someone you live with, need an extra room or space in your home due to a disability, you may be entitled to a reduction in Council Tax.

The home must be the main residence of the person with a disability and of major importance to their wellbeing. They must also require one of the following:

  • extra internal space to accommodate a wheelchair which is used indoors
  • a second bathroom or kitchen adapted for the disability
  • an additional room adapted for the disability, other than a bathroom, kitchen or toilet

A Council Tax inspector may arrange to visit your home to confirm you meet the criteria.

Reductions are reviewed each year and we will let you know the outcome in writing.
