Council Tax bands 2024/25

How the bands were set

All properties were valued and put into a valuation band between A and H – in England these bands are based on their value on 1st April 1991, not their current value.

The valuation band determines how much Council Tax you pay and is set by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) which is a central government agency.

If you want further details about your banding, please visit the VOA website, call them on 03000 501501.

What does my council tax pay for?

Council Tax pays for a range of services provided by the organisations listed below. Financial details for each are available by clicking on the links. Full details of the services provided are shown on the individual web sites. 

In basic terms the amount of council tax payable in respect of a property is calculated as follows:

  • The total cost of providing the required local services is calculated
  • This figure is then divided by the number of properties in the borough
  • The result is adjusted to take account of the different council tax bands in which properties are placed

The actual calculation is obviously much more complex than this example. If you want more information on Council Tax calculations, please use our online contact form.
