Council Tax - How much will I pay?

Your council tax is calculated using the Valuation Band of the property, the number of adult residents and details of any appropriate discounts, exemptions, disregards or reductions.

Your home has been allocated one of eight bands according to its market value at 1st April 1991.

The price of your home today is not a good guide as to what your band should be.

Find out your band

If your home has been build recently it may not have a council tax band yet, if you are not able to find your property details contact the valuation office agency for information on your properties council tax band:

If you live within a parish you will be charged an additional amount which is paid to the parish council. The amounts can be seen below.
