We have had to change the way that some of our service operates to meet the guidelines set out by the government in response to the Coronavirus pandemic and to provide additional support for those affected.
If you have adapted your home because someone living with you has a disability, you may be able to get your council tax reduced to a lower band. If your home is in the lowest band you could still get a reduction.
The property must be the main home of the disabled person.
The adaptions to the property must be essential or of major importance in meeting their needs and include at least one of the following:
- An extra bathroom or kitchen that is used by the disabled person
- A room other than a bathroom, kitchen or toilet, that is predominantly used by the disabled person
- Enough floor space and widening of doors to allow use of a wheelchair indoors
We will visit before we make a decision on whether we can award a reduction.
If you get a disabled person's band reduction you can still apply for other discounts.
