Council tax charge

Council Tax is a charge on all households and pays for local services.

Each dwelling in the borough falls within one of eight bands, A to H. 

The full charges for each band for the 2019-20 financial year are:

  • Band A - £1,262.30
  • Band B - £1,472.68
  • Band C - £1,683.07
  • Band D - £1,893.45
  • Band E - £2,314.22
  • Band F - £2,734.98
  • Band G - £3,155.75
  • Band H - £3,786.90

The Valuation Office Agency ('VOA') decides which band the property is placed in and this is based on its market value on 1st April 1991. The amount paid is dependant on which band the property falls into:

The valuation band for your dwelling is shown on your bill. If you have recently moved into the property, or purchased the property and you disagree with the banding, you normally have six months from the date of occupation or purchase to appeal.
