Disagreeing with our assessment

There are various things you can do if you do not agree with any decision we have made in assessing your claim or the amount of council tax reduction you have been awarded.

If you do not agree with any decision we have made in assessing your claim or the amount of Council Tax Reduction you have been awarded you can:

Ask us for more information

If you want to know more about how your council tax reduction has been worked out, please ask us and we will send you more details. You can write, telephone or e-mail us with this request.

Ask us to look again at our decision

If you think your council tax reduction is wrong or you do not agree with our decision you can ask us to look again at how we have worked out your council tax reduction. This is sometimes called a 'review' or 'reconsideration'. You should write to us stating where you think we are wrong.

Your claim will be looked at by a senior member of the Benefits Team who will write to you with their decision.

Take your case to appeal

If you are still not happy after we have reviewed/reconsidered our decision you can take your case to the Valuation Tribunal Service. A request to appeal must be in writing, signed by you and sent to the Valuation Tribunal Service within two months of receiving a written response from the Council.

The Valuations Tribunal Services is an independent tribunal made up of people who are not from the Local Authority.
