Disabled relief application

People with certain disabilities may be entitled to a reduction in council tax.

We can reduce the council tax if a physically disabled person needs at least one of the following:

  • An extra bathroom or kitchen
  • Extra space for a wheelchair if they need to use a wheelchair inside
  • A room that is used mainly to meet their needs
