What band am I in?

You can find out which band you are in by using our postcode search.

Your bill will also tell you which band you are in.

Who decides the banding?

The council doesn’t set the bands, these are set by the Valuation Office Agency. If you’re not happy with your band or want further details about your banding please contact the Valuation Office Agency

The banding of a property is based on what its open market value was on 1 April 1991. They are follows:

Band Property Value
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 More than £320,000

From April 2019, properties that have been empty for more than two years and currently pay the full charge, will have an additional 100% premium added to their bill.
