Pay council tax

There are a number of ways to pay but you will need your council tax reference number. This number is nine digits long, starts with a one and is located on the top right of any correspondence sent by the council tax department. 

When paying by cash, card or cheque, you should make the payments before or on the due dates given on your bill. Failure to do so can result in recovery action being taken against you. 


If you have your reference number, you can make a payment online using your debit/credit card. We accept the following card payments;

  • Visa Credit
  • Visa Debit 
  • UK Maestro 
  • International Maestro 
  • Mastercard 
  • Solo 
  • Electron
  • JCB
