Council Tax Bands Charges

The GOV.UK helps you find out which band your home is in. Just put your postcode into their online tool to find the band for your home. Then come back here to see the charges for that band.

The Council Tax for 2020 to 2021 was agreed at the Full Council meeting on 27 February 2020. These charges show the full charge. If you get a Council Tax discount or reduction, these will show on your bill.

Appealing against your band

Valuation bands are based on how much a property was worth on 1 April 1991. The Valuation Office Agency is responsible for setting the Council Tax bands.

If you think your property is in the wrong band you can challenge your council tax band.

Liability appeals

You can also appeal if you think you should not be liable to pay Council Tax. This may be because:

  • you are not the resident or the owner

  • your property should be exempt

  • you think we have made a mistake calculating your bill

If you wish to appeal on these grounds please notify us in writing so that we can reconsider the case. Please explain why you believe you have been charged the wrong amount of Council Tax and provide evidence where possible to support your appeal. If your appeal is successful we will refund you any overpaid Council Tax.

If you make an appeal and you are still not satisfied with our decision (or you are not notified of a decision within 2 months of making your appeal) you can then appeal further to a Valuation Tribunal.

You can appeal directly to the Tribunal against the imposition of a penalty without first having to contact the Council.
