Paying your Council Tax

We would like to thank residents for continuing to pay their Council Tax as your contribution is helping us to maintain essential services. It is important that if your circumstances have not changed, that you continue to pay what you should and maintain your payment plan as detailed on your annual bill.
 
We understand that this is a difficult time for everyone, especially the most vulnerable members of our society. If you are struggling to pay your Council Tax, you should ensure you claim all of the benefits that you are entitled to.

For working age applicants this is Universal Credit, which is administered by the Department for Work and Pensions and our Council Tax Reduction scheme
 
If you haven’t done so already, you may also be able to extend your instalments from 10 to 12 months to lower your monthly payments.  More about setting up your Direct Debit.
 
The annual bills for Council Tax were prepared and printed before any Government announcements, however we are working hard to implement the initiatives where they apply.
