Council Tax reduction for homes adapted for a disabled person

If you or someone who lives with you has a disability and your home has been adapted to meet their needs, you might be able to claim a reduction in your Council Tax.

The reduction will be equivalent to re-banding your home to one below your current band.

Band A is the lowest, so if you’re already in this band, we'll reduce your bill by the equivalent of one-ninth of Band D.

We might be able to give you a reduction if your home has any of these features to support the disabled person's wellbeing:

  • a room (other than a bathroom, kitchen or toilet) used mainly by the disabled person - for example an extension or room used for storing dialysis equipment or wheelchairs, or a bedroom on the ground floor in a property with two or more floors
  • an additional bathroom or kitchen, specifically to meet the needs of the disabled person
  • adaptations to your home to allow wheelchair use

We'll contact you when we receive your application.

We may need to visit your home to decide whether you qualify for this reduction.
