Council Tax e-billing prize draw

Register for e-billing by 20 February and you’ll be entered into a prize draw to win a share of £1,000 off your council tax!

If you register for e-billing we can send your council tax bill to you via email rather than through the post. This saves us money and is environmentally friendly. Don’t worry, if you already receive your bill this way, you’ll automatically be entered into the draw too - you don't need to register again.
