Council Tax bands 2018-2019

We set the Council Tax rates and the Valuation Office Agency makes sure your home is in the correct band so you pay the right amount of Council Tax. The Valuation Office Agency decides your correct band based on the value of your property at 1 April 1991, not what a property is worth today.​
