How much Council Tax you pay

The amount of Council Tax you pay depends on the value of your property.

Each property has been valued and placed into one of eight Council Tax bands. The bands range alphabetically from band A to band H.

The valuation is based on the estimated value of the property at 1 April 1991, and does not relate to the current value of the property. This is done by the Valuation Office Agency.

Any improvements or alterations made to a property may affect its value or band, but will not be taken into consideration until the property is sold.

Council Tax band value at 1 April 1991

  • A - Up to £40,000
  • B - £40,001 to £52,000
  • C - £52,001 to £68,000
  • D - £68,001 to £88,000
  • E - £88,001 to £120,000
  • F - £120,001 to £160,000
  • G - £160,001 to £320,000
  • H - £320,001 and over
