Council Tax bands & appeals
The Valuation Office Agency (VOA), not the Council, allocates every property one of eight bands based on its value on 1 April 1991. Even if you live in a new property the VOA will work out the band based on what the property value would have been in 1991.
- You can find your property’s council tax band by looking at the Council Tax Valuation List at the Valuation Office Agency’s website. You can access this website at the Council office reception.
|Council Tax 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|
Please note that we are unable to advise on timescales regarding VOA band allocation.
