Council Tax bands

Last Updated: 27 May 2022

Most dwellings are subject to Council Tax. There is one bill per dwelling whether it is owned or rented, and whether it is a house, bungalow, flat, maisonette, mobile home or houseboat.

To work out the Council Tax due on a property you will need to find out the Council Tax band and the annual charges for the parish the property is in.

If you think that you are being charged incorrectly, for example if a discount or exemption has not been applied, you can appeal a Council Tax banding. Follow the guidance below to check if you have grounds to make an appeal.

Your Council Tax bill also states which band applies to your dwelling.

Each property is allocated one of eight bands according to its market value on 1 April 1991.

Council Tax annual charges, by parish

Your bill may vary as all parishes are slightly different depending on the ‘parish precept’ (the amount your parish council needs to finance the services it delivers itself).
