Warning signIndustrial action is being taken by members of Unite The Union and Unison. This may affect council services over the coming weeks. Currently, bin collections are back on schedule. However, we expect them to be affected again after the bank holiday on Monday 7 May. Please refer to our website nearer the time for updates.

Council Tax valuation bands

Most properties have to pay Council Tax and this includes houses, bungalows, flats, maisonettes, mobile homes or houseboats. Each property requires one bill whether it is owned or rented.

All dwellings are valued into one of eight bands according to the market capital value as at 1 April 1991.

The Valuation Office Agency values all properties for Council Tax purposes, not the council.

Your Council Tax bill states which band applies to your property.
