Disablement Relief

A reduction in Council Tax can be granted where a disabled person is resident in a property. The reduction is equivalent to one band.

To qualify for the reduction, at least one of the following criteria must be met:

  • There is a room predominantly used (whether for providing therapy or otherwise) by the disabled person, e.g. to allow for the installation and use of dialysis equipment.
  • There is a second bathroom or kitchen required for meeting the needs of the disabled person.
  • A wheelchair is required for meeting the individual’s needs at all times.

You can apply for the discount online:

Once your application has been received, we will be in touch with you to arrange a visit to verify the entitlement.

If you reside in a property which is in Band A, you will still receive a reduction in your Council Tax liability.
