Julie hope you get council tax reduction not much just a band reduction, but we had to apply a 3 times as adaptations initially not deemed sufficient, it only when I could prove wheelchair could access wet room, bedroom and lounge with M in it did the guy from the council relent. The galling thing was I used to work with guy though this may have been why he had to be strict.

Once you have it though it is for as long as you both in the house. Also the wet room will be a great help.

Best wishes Tim

Just to let those know that don't already, that if your loved one uses a wheelchair, you can also get a reduction in council tax!



Just to say that wegot a reduction in our council tax purely because of the PSP diagnosis for my husband. You fill out a council form and have to send a letter of confirmation regarding the condition from your GP. It might only be 25% but its a help

Remember that no VAT should be charged on the alterations either :)

We also received a discount for council tax due to PSP, they reduced it as we had attendance allowance for mental impairment due to the PSP.


We were granted a 25% reduction in council tax purely because of PSP. We had to get a form SM1 from the council and then the GP had to sign. that led to an interesting discussion as to whether or not Bug's symptoms were purely physical... The PSPA guide was very helpful in resolving the situation.
