Arrears and debt recovery

If you miss a council tax payment, we will send you a reminder notice giving you seven days to pay before a court summons is issued.

If you fall behind on your council tax payments three times in one financial year, you will lose the right to pay by instalments and we will send you a final notice asking for full payment of the council tax due for the rest of the year. 

If you are struggling to pay your council tax, you must contact us straight away.
