For general information, contact details, relevant forms and information on how to pay your Council Tax.

Council Tax is a tax based on property but with a personal element. Properties are placed in one of eight Valuation Bands which decides the level of tax payable, but this can be reduced depending on whether a discount or exemption is applicable.

Annual Council Tax bills are issued at the end of March each year, for the financial year starting on 1 April. Where the liability for Council Tax does not cover a full financial year, the amount of tax payable will be adjusted pro-rata.
