Discounts & Exemptions

Discounts & Exemptions

If there is a permanently disabled person living in the dwelling as their main home (not necessarily the council taxpayer) and they require at least one of the following features to meet the needs of their disability, there may be a reduction in the Council Tax payable on the property:-

  • A room (other than a bathroom, kitchen or toilet) used mainly by the disabled person to meet their needs
  • An additional bathroom or kitchen adapted for use by the disabled person
  • Space in the dwelling to allow for the use of a wheelchair

If you are entitled to this reduction, the Council Tax will be reduced to that of a property in the valuation band immediately below that shown in the valuation list for your dwelling. A reduction will also apply to properties in band A.
