Pay your council tax
The easiest way to pay is by Direct Debit.
You'll need the online key code from your council tax bill to log-in to your account (through Account Details), follow the instructions from there.
Or, fill in and return a direct debit form [PDF, 95kB] or call 01223 457790 to set up a direct debit.
You can pay on either the 5th or 15th of the month.
Please continue to make payment by your current method until you receive a new bill showing details of the direct debit payments.
