There are eight Council Tax valuation bands. Your band and the amount of Council Tax you pay depend on the value of your property: the more expensive the property, the higher the band and the bigger the charge.
The Valuation Office has given every property a valuation band between A and H according to its value. Current market values may not be the best guide to the band your home is in.

If you are thinking about buying a home please remember the band may be increased following the sale if the previous owner has improved the property.
Council Tax bands and market values are based on a calculation taken by the government in 1991:
The County Council has set a Band D Council Tax for 2018/19 of £1,888.08.
This is made up of:
The amount paid to us has increased by 4.99% for 2019/20 and comprises £1,585.86 for general expenditure plus £119.32 exclusively for adult social care.
Additional amounts have been set for areas where a Town or a Parish precept applies.
