Council tax – set up a summons payment arrangement

Set up a payment arrangement to pay your summons.
Website survey

We want your help with improving our website so it is easier to use, and provides the information that residents need. Help us by filling in this short survey.

Who should use this form

You should only use this form if you have been sent a summons.

How to complete the form

  • It should take between five and 10 minutes to complete.

  • You will need to have your council tax account number and payment details ready.

What happens next

By requesting a payment arrangement, you will not stop the action we are taking against you. We will contact you within 10 working days to confirm:

  • if we have agreed to your arrangement

  • details of the amounts you need to pay.

Your liability order hearing will be held on the date shown on the front of your summons letter.

If you arrange a payment plan that finishes after your court hearing date, you will have to pay an extra £50 for the liability order. You can avoid this extra cost if you pay in full now.
