Council tax discount for people with disabilities

Website maintenance

Due to essential maintenance work, our website may be offline for a few minutes on Monday 26 June between 10pm and midnight. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

If your property has been adapted in some way to accommodate someone with a disability, then you may be entitled to discount on your council tax account.

The adaptations may include:

  • adapting a ground floor living room into a bedroom
  • creation of an addition bathroom and or a kitchen
  • creation of extra space in your property to meet special needs arising from a disability

The bill may be reduced to that of a property in the band immediately below the band shown on the valuation list.

If your home is in Band A, your bill will be reduced by 1/6th of the Band A charge.

How to apply for a council tax discount

The bill payer or person liable to pay council tax should download and complete an application for council tax reduction for those with disabilities.

The person with the disability must be living at the property for a discount to be made.

More information

You must continue to pay your bill on time until any discount is applied. If you default on payments you may face recovery action.

For further details on other discounts contact our council tax team.
