Your Council Tax helps to pay for a wide range of local services like policing and refuse collection. It applies to all domestic properties, including house, bungalows, flats, maisonettes, mobile homes and houseboats, whether owned or rented.

The document below shows the total Council Tax charged for each band for 2018/19, by Parish. The charges shown in the tables are before any exemptions or discounts are applied.
If you do not think you are liable for the Council Tax for the property you've been billed for, or you think an exemption or discount should be applied - you can appeal the decision.
You must first appeal to us directly in writing at email@example.com or by letter, to the Revenues Department. You must provide detailed reasons for your appeal to allow the matter to be reconsidered.
There is a further right to appeal to the Valuation Tribunal against the Council's decision, and more information can be found at their website here.
