In the meantime if residents have any concerns about making Council Tax payments they should contact our Council Tax team on 0300 790 0381 or email to so that we can ensure that you are getting all of the support that you are entitled to.

Councillor Adam Yates, portfolio holder for Resources and Transformation, said: "The Council understands that the impact of the coronavirus pandemic will cause financial problems for many residents. If anyone has concerns about paying their Council Tax please get in contact with us and we will do our absolute best to help."
