Bands and charges
You can find out how much Council Tax you will pay each year by finding out the Council Tax band of your property.
The band of your property is also shown on the bill we send to you, just below where it says: ‘Council Tax demand’.
Once you know the band, you can then look up the cost against the band below.
More about your Council Tax band
The Valuation Office Agency (VAO) maintains the Council Tax Valuation List. This includes placing new properties within a Council Tax band and changing bands for properties when necessary.
Can I appeal against my property’s band?
If you challenge your band, you must continue to pay Council Tax at your current band until your appeal is decided.
You can contact the VOA at GOV.UK. If you are unable to use the online service you can also contact the VOA on 03000 501 501.
You can make an appeal without instructing an agent or other organisation who may charge you a commission or fee.
