If you think your council tax banding is wrong

The Valuation Office Agency Opens in a new window is responsible for setting the bands for council tax properties. If you think your banding is wrong you should contact the VOA to appeal, not us. You must continue to pay your existing bill while you are waiting for the results of an appeal.
