Bands and charges

Find out about the different Council Tax bands and charges.

Important notice

The Council has become aware that citizens have been contacted by companies who offer to appeal against the Council Tax banding of their property on behalf of the Council Tax payer. The aim of this is to get the council tax band for the property reduced and receive a refund from the Council for overpaid Council Tax.

The Council wishes to make citizens aware that:

         
Each dwelling has been allocated to one of eight bands according to its open market value at 1 April 1991.

The band on your property is set by The Valuation Office Agency.

Find out what band your property is in

You can check the band for your address or any other property in England and Wales by visiting the website of the Valuation Office Agency.

Appeal against your banding

The band that your property falls into is also shown on your Council Tax bill. If you want to check or appeal against your banding you should contact the Listing Officer direct and not the Council. The contact address and other details are:

Valuation Office Agency
Ground Floor
Ferrers House
Castle Meadow Road
Nottingham
NG2 1AB

Telephone: 03000 501 501
Fax: 03000 500 975
Email: cteast@voa.gsi.gov.uk
Website: http://www.voa.gov.uk

If you believe your banding may be wrong you can either make a formal appeal to the Valuation Officer or simply ask them to check it. You can make an appeal if:

  • you have been liable for your property for less than 6 months and can demonstrate that its value at 1 April 1991 would have been such that it should be in a different band;
  • you believe your property warrants a reduced value due to a change in the property or locality, eg part of your property has been converted or demolished or there has been a material change in the area you live in.

More details on checking and appealing your banding can be found on the Valuation Office Agency website http://www.voa.gov.uk

Before deciding to contact the Valuation Office, please remember that prices of dwellings vary over time. The valuation for Council Tax purposes was made on 1 April 1991 and the change in general prices since then is not grounds for appeal.

Please note that making an appeal does not allow you to withhold payment of Council Tax. If you are successful in reducing your band you will receive the benefit of any overpaid Council Tax.
