Disabled Band Reduction
You may be entitled to a reduction if someone with a substantial and permanent disability is resident in your home.
To qualify for a reduction in the Tax and Water Services Charges the property should have either:
- A room, other than a bathroom, a kitchen or lavatory, which is predominantly used (whether for providing therapy or otherwise) by the disabled person and is required for meeting their needs; or
- an additional bathroom or kitchen which is required to meet the needs of the disabled person; or
- sufficient floor space to permit the use of a wheelchair. The disabled person must need to use the wheelchair indoors.
If you think you may be entitled to Disabled Band Reduction, please contact any Council Service Point or the Operations Team. You can also download the relevant form using the links opposite, print and return the completed form to the address on the document. Before you return the form to us please check that you have signed and dated it. We cannot award Disabled Band Reduction unless we have a signed claim.
Before any decision is made on a reduction, we may need to visit you at a mutually agreeable time.
