Disabled band reduction scheme

If you or anyone in your home is disabled and one or more of the following statements is true you may qualify for a reduction in Council Tax:

  • An additional bathroom, required for meeting the disabled persons needs
  • An additional kitchen, required for meeting the disabled persons needs
  • The use of a wheelchair, by the disabled person, inside the house
  • A room, other than a bathroom, kitchen or lavatory, which is used predominately (whether for providing therapy or otherwise) by the disabled person, and required for meeting their needs.

The reduction takes the form of a drop in valuation band from, for example, C to B.  If you live in a band A property, the reduction will be approximately 17% of the council tax charge.
