What your Council Tax pays for
We are responsible for collecting Council Tax from residents to help pay for the work of local councils and emergency services.
Council Tax is a property-based tax which is payable on domestic properties. There is one Council Tax bill per property, and the people who own or live there are normally responsible for paying it.
