About Council Tax


Most households have to pay Council Tax. There is one bill per household, whether it is a house, bungalow, flat, mobile home or houseboat, and whether it is owned or rented.

The full Council Tax assumes that there are two or more adults living in a property. If there is only one adult, a discount may be allowed on the Council Tax bill.

There are also a number of people who are disregarded when we look at the number of adults who live in a property.

The full amount of Council Tax is based on the property band into which your home falls. The bandings are determined by the Valuation Office Agency.
