How to pay council tax

Payment of your Council Tax can be made in a number of different ways:

Direct Debit Payments

You have a choice of four different payment dates: 1st, 10th, 18th, or 25th of the month.

Direct Debit is the method preferred by over 86% of the residents in the area as it is the cheapest and the most cost efficient way to pay. In addition to the Direct Debit Guarantee, we also guarantee that in the unlikely event of a mistake occurring, they will promptly reimburse you for any direct costs attributable to the error.
