Changes to the way you can pay
The Council changed its banking arrangements in April 2012 and no longer provides facilities to make payments at branches of Barclays bank.
If you pay by paying-in slip at a bank for Council Tax, Business Rates, Housing Benefits Overpayments, or for a Council Invoice, you can continue to do this at your own bank, but not at a branch of Barclays bank unless your account is also with them.
Payments can also be made locally at any Post Office or PayPoint taking your bill with you, or via one of the wide range of alternative payment methods.
You can pay free of charge by cash, cheque, or debit card at any Post Office. You must take your bill with you, as the Post Office will need to read the bar code details printed on your bill. If you pay by cheque, make your cheque payable to ‘Post Office Ltd’.
You can pay free of charge by cash at any PayPoint.You must take your bill with you, as PayPoint will need to read the bar code details printed on your bill.
