Sign up online, the aim is to get as many people as possible signed up to the registry by October.

Scam email alert

We are aware of a scam email that some residents have received to say that a council tax rebate will be paid to them.

We never send unsolicited emails about council tax benefits and ask that you are cautious over emails that sound too good to be true.

Always take a moment to consider if an email could be a scam, check details like the web address, and see the advice given by Action Fraud on how to avoid fraud and scams.

If you receive an email about council tax and would like to check its authenticity, please do get in touch at

If you are having difficulty paying your Council Tax, contact us straight away. We will do our best to help you.

Join the Hampshire residents forum

Hampshire County Council is looking for local people to join a new forum to help shape the delivery of essential services, and support the county to get back on its feet post COVID-19.

Known as Hampshire Perspectives, the forum's members will be asked to give their views on a wide range of topics from social care, to climate change, and economic prosperity.

Forum members can expect to be contacted every two to four weeks, via email, and asked a small number of questions. There will also be opportunities for those taking part to provide more in-depth feedback via face to face meetings, when it is safe to do so.

To register your interest, please complete HCC's short online questionnaire.

Are you a business collecting customer information for Test and Trace?
