Revenues and Benefits Service Announcement

Our Council Tax, Benefits and Business Rates service will be limited from 11 to 30 July. This is so that we can implement a new computer system which will improve how we process your accounts and claims.

We will not be able to deal with any changes to existing Council Tax or Business Rates accounts, or Benefit claims during this period.
