Disabled relief

If you, or someone who lives with you

  • needs a room, or an extra bathroom or kitchen in your property
  • to meet special needs arising from a disability,
  • or you need to use a wheelchair in your property then you may be entitled to a reduced Council Tax bill.

The bill may be reduced to that of a dwelling in the band immediately below the band shown on the valuation list (if the dwelling is in Band A, the reduced charge is calculated as five ninths of a Band D charge).

These reductions ensure that disabled people do not pay more Council Tax on account of space needed because of a disability.

Further information is available from the Revenues Section (Telephone 01629 818222 Option 4).
