Do It Online - Benefits and Council Tax
When making a claim online for housing benefit or council tax reduction you may be asked to bring an original document to the council offices for verification.
Please note that in view of the current national situation and until further notice we will be able to accept copies of documents by e-mail.
The Council Tax & Benefits telephone lines are currently closed on a Wednesday. This website contains links to self-serve areas for both Council Tax and Benefits, as well as comprehensive information about the services provided. Normal telephony service will resume at 0900 on Thursday morning.
