Your council tax bill explained
Watch our video which explains the items on your council tax bill
The council tax you pay goes towards local services such as policing, fire services, education, parks and household rubbish collections.
We send you a new council tax bill every March showing the dates and amounts to be paid for the next financial year. We will also send you a new bill if something changes during the year.
The amount of council tax you have to pay depends on the area that you live in and which property band your home is given. Your bill will be adjusted if you qualify for any of the council tax discounts or exemptions, or if you qualify for help with your council tax because you have a low income. Your bill will also be adjusted if you are charged a premium.
