Who decides the banding?

The council doesn’t set the bands, these are set by the Valuation Office Agency.

If you think that your band is wrong or want further details about your banding please contact the Valuation Office Agency.

The banding of a property is based on what its open market value was on 1 April 1991.

They are follows:

Valuation band Range of property values
A up to £40,000
B £40,001 - £52,000
C £52,001 - £68,000
D £68,001 - £88,000
