How to pay

You can pay your Council Tax by Direct Debit, cash, or debit/credit card.

Fill in the application or call 01293 438616 to set up a Direct Debit. For Direct Debit only, you can choose a payment date of the 1st, 15th or 25th of the month.

All other payment methods should be made by the 1st of the month. 

If you wish pay by 12 monthly instalments in a full financial year instead of by 10 monthly instalments, email the Council Tax team or call 01293 438616.

See the Making payments page for more on the options available to you. You will need to have your Council Tax account number with you when making payments.

Failure to make payments

If payments are not made when they are due, action will be taken to retrieve the outstanding amount and any additional costs. Ensure that you make payments so you don’t lose your right to pay by instalments. 

If you are struggling to pay, email the Council Tax team or call 01293 438616. If your income is low or has changed, you may be eligible for a Council Tax Reduction.
