Council Tax bands

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.

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

The following table is based on the charges for the Kendal area for 1 April 2017 to 31 March 2018 but your bill may vary as all parishes are slightly different depending on the parish precept.
