Council Tax pays for vital local services we all depend on. Our dedicated team is here to help you pay your Council Tax - and help you if you're finding it hard to pay.
We send out annual Council Tax demand notices in March every year.
The charge is legally payable over ten instalments (April to January) and this is what most people do.
There is also the option to pay over 12 months - you just have to ask. Depending on when we receive your request we will spread your charge over the remaining months in the financial year. You can also make block payments (for half a year, annual or weekly) - but they must be paid in advance.
