Council Tax News

Annual empty property review

We are reviewing our records for properties that are classed as unoccupied and unfurnished for at least 6 months.

If you have received a letter you should complete and return the form that has been sent to you within 14 days whether there has been a change or not. Or you can fill in our online empty property review form to update our records

Unless we hear from you within 14 days we will assume the property circumstances remain unchanged and we may make socially distanced visits to the property to check for residency.

Council Tax news

We are using SMS (texts) to contact our customers about late instalments. Text messaging is a cheaper and often more convenient way of getting in touch with residents. It is used by a growing number of Government and private sector organisations to send brief advice messages to customers.
