Council tax bands and bills

Properties are placed into one of eight bands (A-H) depending on their market value on 1 April 1991.

The Valuation Office Agency is responsible for deciding the band for each property and the band will determine how much Council tax you pay.

The full Council tax is based on two or more adults living in your property.
