A reduction in council tax where the property is the sole or main residence of someone who is substantially and permanently disabled adult or child.
The property must have extra facilities, or space, which are essential or of major importance to the disabled person's well-being by the nature and extent of their disability.
If your property is larger because of the needs of a disabled person, the discount allows your Council Tax bill to be reduced to take account of those needs.
You need to apply for an exemption, it will not automatically be granted.
This discount is not applied as a percentage of the bill, instead, it reduces the council tax band by one band, for example, if your property is band D your bill will be reduced to band C charges.
