Council Tax bands
Council Tax bands are determined by the Valuation Office and range from A to H, with A being the lowest value band and H being the highest.
The District Valuer is responsible for assessing property values, which are based on their market value on 1 April 1991.

The amount of Council Tax payable for a property in a specific band varies between parishes.

There are a number of circumstances that could change the valuation band of a property. For more information, see the Valuation Office website.
