Council Tax

Council Tax is a property tax with a personal element. The property element is based on the property's valuation band. The personal element takes into account the number of people aged over 18 living in a property, and allows for a discount to be granted in some circumstances.

Cost of Living Support Payment

On 15 February Welsh Government announced a £150 cost of living support payment will be provided to:

  • All households who live in properties in council tax bands A-D; and

  • All households who are recipients of the Council Tax Reduction Scheme who live in properties in council tax bands (A-I)

A Discretionary Scheme will also be established to help support other households who may be struggling but do not fit in the above criteria.

 

If you pay your Council Tax by direct debit, we will automatically make the payment directly to your bank account. These payments will start from Thursday 5 May. All eligible households who pay via direct debit should receive their Cost of Living Support payment by 13 May 2022.

 

If you do not pay your Council Tax by direct debit, you will need to register for the payment. We will contact you either by email or letter explaining the process you must follow to claim the payment.
