If you are going to contact us with a particular query on your own council tax account, please make sure you have your council tax account number available. 

If you contact us on behalf of someone else, you will need to provide us with authority from the person concerned to allow us to discuss their personal details with you.  

Have you changed address?

Use our change of address form [online form, opens in new window] if you are moving into the Borough, moving out of the Borough or moving to a new property in the Borough.

If you are moving out of the Borough, you will need to tell your new Council that you are moving in. You can enter your postcode on the GOV.UK website [external link] and find out what Council area you will be moving to.
