Disabled person's band reduction

A reduction in Council Tax may be possible if any resident is disabled and any one of the undernoted facilities exist within the house to meet his or her needs:

  • an additional bathroom or kitchen
  • a room used predominantly by the disabled person
  • use within the house of a wheelchair by the disabled person

The reduction takes the form of a drop in valuation band from, for example, "C" to "B", and is available to everyone regardless of income.
