How the bands were set

All properties were valued and put into a valuation band between A and H – in England these bands are based on their value on 1st April 1991, not their current value.

The valuation band determines how much Council Tax you pay and is set by the Valuation Office Agency (VOA) which is a central government agency.

If you want further details about your banding, please visit the VOA website www.voa.gov.uk, call them on 03000 501501 or email ctnorth@voa.gsi.gov.uk.
