Discount on residential properties claiming a room is used for worship

Jay made this Freedom of Information request to Leeds City Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Leeds City Council,
Could you please confirm if it is possible and if so how many homes in Leeds and the surrounding areas receive a discount or pay no council tax because part of their home is deemed a place of worship. I heard an alarming rumour that newly built houses in Dewsbury in the million pound price bracket were claiming a large reduction in their council tax because one room was deemed a place of worship.
Awaiting your response
Beverly Jay

Yours faithfully,
