Council Tax bands and charges

How much will Council Tax cost in 2017-2018?

The Valuation Office Agency allocates each property to one of eight bands according to its value on the open market at 1 April 1991. If you have a question about the band value of a property, please contact 03000 501501.

Which band is my property in?

Parish Council  Extra charge for Band D 

Allesley

£24.80
Finham

£13.81

Keresley

£6.61

Council tax payers in other bands within these parishes will be charged a higher or lower amount dependant on which band their property is in.

Why is a house in the same street in a lower band than mine? 

All properties were valued before the start of Council Tax, the effective date was 1 April 1991. After valuation, the properties were placed in one of the bands. Bands are based on the saleable value of the property on 1 April 1991 and NOT the current value.

How do I appeal my Council Tax band? 

If you become the owner of a property for the first time, you can make an appeal on your band value to the Valuation Office Agency within 6 months. If you do appeal you MUST continue paying your original Council Tax bill. If your appeal is successful we will refund any money that you have overpaid.
