2020-2021 Council Tax bands

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.​

The 8 Council Tax bands and the charge for each band is displayed below.

Challenging your Council Tax band

It's free to challenge or enquire about your Council Tax band from the Valuation Office Agency (VOA).

They can tell you how your Council Tax band has been worked out and can review your band if you think it's wrong. If they agree it's wrong they'll revise your band and let us know. We'll then update your Council Tax bill.

You can challenge a Council Tax band by:

  • Asking the VOA to check it, if you think your home was valued incorrectly.
  • Making a formal challenge to the VOA. You can only do this in certain circumstances, for example if your property has changed significantly since it was valued.

You must continue to pay your Council Tax bill while you challenge your band.
