Council tax bands and charges

Your council tax band

Your property is banded into one of eight valuation bands (A to H), which determines the amount of council tax you have to pay.

We don't decide what band your property is in, it's set by the government's Valuation Office.

You can challenge their decision if you think your home is in the wrong band.

Council tax charges

Council tax charges are set each year and we send you a bill every March.

These are the charges that have been set for the period 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019 for each of the valuation bands.

A- A B C D E F G H
922.71 1107.27 1291.81 1476.35 1660.90 2029.98 2399.08 2768.16 3321.80

For comparison, these are our council tax charges for previous years.

Parish council charges

Parish councils are separate legal bodies, responsible for their own finances. They receive their funding by adding an annual charge, called a precept, to your council tax bill.

The additional charge (precept) covers any targeted spending in your parish, as well as contributing towards the cost of policing, passenger transport, pensions and fire and civil defence in the borough.

If you live in an area that has a parish council, your council tax will vary depending on the precept added for your area.

Check the information below to see the charge that's been set for your parish for the period 1 April 2018 to 31 March 2019.
