Coronavirus: latest information on our response, updates on our services and what support is available

Council tax

Beware of the latest council tax email scam that aims to capture your personal details. Emails from the council would not ask for any bank details etc. If you have any concerns please contact us.

The government has stated that it is establishing a £500m hardship fund to support “economically vulnerable people and households”. Allocations and criteria have yet to be announced however support is currently provided by our existing Local Council Tax Support Scheme and our Welfare Grant Scheme.


Council Tax and Non Domestic Rates  – Liability Court Hearings

In order to protect the public from the threat of COVID-19, we have taken the decision to cancel Liability Order Hearings taking place on 25 March 20 for Non Domestic Rates and 8 April 20 for Council Tax.

The decision has been taken due to the unprecedented threat to public health posed by the outbreak of COVID-19, and will help to support official guidance about social distancing.  These will be rescheduled for an alternative date.  In the meantime, methods of payment can be located on this website. We will continue to keep you updated.
