Council Tax bands
If you have any concerns regarding the assessment of your Council Tax valuation band contact the Valuation Office Agency.
The Council has no control over Council Tax banding and doesn’t deal with appeals.
The Valuation Office Agency puts every domestic property into a Council Tax band from A-H. The band is based on the assumed market value as at 1 April 1991. There has been no revaluation in England and this is why the 1 April 1991 remains the date used.
The higher the band, the more Council Tax you pay.
