Details of how to apply for and what requirements need to be met to be awarded disabled persons reduction.

You could pay less Council Tax if a disabled person lives in the property and requires, as a result of their disability,

  • an extra room to meet their needs; or
  • an extra bathroom to meet their needs; or
  • to use a wheelchair in the property.

If this is the case we will charge you the Council Tax for a band lower than your actual property band, e.g. if your property is in a band B your Council Tax will be charged at band A levels
