What you pay

The amount of Council Tax you pay is based on the value of your home, which determines the Council Tax band your home is in.

Council Tax bands and charges

The Valuation Office Agency estimates the sale price (value) of your home as if it had it been sold on 1 April 1991, and places your home into 1 of 8 bands with other similar valued properties.

The valuation band for your property will determine how much Council Tax you pay.

New properties

Please contact us if your property is new and has not been placed in a band yet. You can still make payments against your future Council Tax bill.

Changes to your Council Tax band

Your property may be revalued and put in a different band if you (or a previous owner) have made significant changes to the property, for example adding an extension, demolishing part of your property or splitting your property into two or more self-contained units. Significant changes to your local area, like a new road being built, might also change the band your property is in.

Ask your local Valuation Office Agency office if you want to know if changes to your property will affect your Council Tax band.

Appeal against banding

If you believe your home is in the wrong band, you may be able to appeal - refer to 'Appeal my bill' in 'Supporting documents & links'.

Council Tax spending

Information about how we spend the money we raise from Council Tax is included in our Council Tax bill leaflets. Further information in relation to Adult Social Care (ASC) and how your bill has been calculated are shown in the documents 'How your bill is calculated 2017-18' and 'About your Council Tax increase 2017-18' in 'Supporting documents & links'.
