Request for extra help to pay your council tax

Information

By completing this application you are requesting assistance in paying your Council Tax. All requests of this type are at the discretion of the Council and you do not have a mandatory right to this payment.

If you have already applied for help to pay your Council Tax during this financial year (April to March) this application will be forwarded to our debt management team who will offer you Personal Budgeting Support (PBS) and advice on managing your finances and budgeting. Until this happens this application will not be processed and no payment will be made and no further applications will be accepted.

The information requested on this form will be held on our computer system and used to assess if you are entitled to extra help with paying your council tax bill.

The information you provide us with could be used for the prevention and detection of fraud. We may also share this information with other organisations responsible for auditing or administering public funds.
