Thanks for your reply.
My local authoroty is Stockton on Tees.
Im just not sure how to word the letter replying to them to rejecting this six year ruling.
If I write saying I want to appeal,aga8nst their decision on only backdating six years and include the professors words on this, is there anything else I should be saying in the letter, such as that I’m prepared to take it to a valuation tribunal?

Ok thanks for that.
It’s at this point I’m beginning to wonder if I’m knowledgable enough to take on the council. I don’t even know what a process of notification is. So literally thinking the council have got the upper hand here!
I have briefly scanned the above ruling and the 'case' in question did not address Council tax discounts and repayments for ‘severe mental impairment’ per se; it dealt with another Council Tax matter all together. Therefore, the facts and circumstances of your case may be somewhat different and thus you cannot simply assume that you can rely upon the ruling.
CIS is correct in what he says re the Council relying on the 'Arca' case, but that ruling has now in effect been corrected.

Hi. Not sure if this is off topic, but I have just applied for this discount with Glasgow City Council for my mum who has brain damage. The injury occured in 2007 and her GP signed the form confirming this. When I spoke to Council Tax about backdating, the operator told me they have no rules on backdating so just put whatever date I wanted on the form.
I only posted the form yesterday but will report back here about the outcome.
