Current Council Tax charges

The current Council Tax charges can be found on Council Tax charges by band and area for 2019/20 (PDF).

If you need to check which ward you live in and what band your property is enter your postcode in to the Find my nearest page.

How properties are banded

The Valuation Office Agency decide the band that your property is in.

To find out about how this is done go to GOV.UK – How domestic properties are assessed for Council Tax bands.

Challenge your Council Tax band

You might be able to challenge your Council Tax band if you have evidence that suggests the band is wrong.

To make an appeal go to GOV.UK – Challenge your Council Tax band.

If you submit an appeal against your bill or banding, you must continue to pay your Council Tax. If you do not pay you will be issued with a reminder and risk a summons and liability order.

Precept charges

A precept is a charge seperate from your Council Tax that is added to and shown on your bill. Precept charges in this area are for things such as:

  • Local police service
