Extra help with your Council Tax bill

Some residents may be eligible for further financial support with their Council Tax as the Council aims to provide further financial support to help economically vulnerable people and households most effected by coronavirus.

The Council is in the process of looking at the detail and how these additional reductions can be applied to bills as soon as possible.

If you are already in receipt of council tax support you do not need to contact the Council; we will issue a revised council tax bill as soon as we are able to.

Due to the coronavirus these changes and new bills may take a while to come through, please bear with us.
