You could pay less Council Tax if a disabled person lives in the home and requires:
- an extra room to meet their needs; or
- an extra bathroom to meet their needs; or
- to use a wheelchair in the home.
If this is the case we will charge you the Council Tax for a band lower than your actual property band.
