Council Tax Charges and Bands

Council Tax is a property based tax (including some caravans) which contributes towards our services.

A 3% increase will be made to Council Tax in 2022-23.

Your property banding

Every property is in a band and the charge is based on two adult residents. How much you pay depends on which band your house is in. All residential properties are given a Council Tax valuation band by the local assessor. The band is based on the value of your home on 1 April 1991. A different amount of Council Tax is charged on each band. Each local council has a list of all the domestic properties in its area, together with its valuation band. This is called the valuation list.

Each band is calculated as a proportion of band D. The table below details the charges for 2022-23.

Unoccupied property Council Tax

If your property has been unoccupied for more than 12 months, you may be charged double the normal rate of Council Tax. Further details can be found on the long term empty properties page.

Change in household circumstances

To make sure the right person is charged Council Tax at the right rate, you must tell us about any changes in the circumstances of the adults (aged 18 or over) living in a property.

If there have been any changes in your circumstances, for instance if someone new has moved in, or out then please let us know. It means we can see if you are entitled to money off your Council Tax.
