Disabled persons relief

A reduction of council tax may be possible if any member of your household is disabled

If any member of your household is disabled, you may be eligible for a reduction in council tax.

A council tax reduction may be possible if any member of your household is disabled. The reduction takes the form of a drop in valuation band from, for example, 'C' to 'B'.

From 1 April 2000, people living in a band 'A' property became eligible for a reduction in their council tax. The reduction for band 'A' properties is approximately 17% of the council tax charge.

If you think you may qualify, please contact the Council Tax Team‚Äč.
