Due to essential maintenance, the following systems will be unavailable from 6.00pm on Monday 2 October until 8.00am on Tuesday 3 October: our online council tax, business rates and housing benefit services, and our welfare assistance form. You will also not be able to register to pay council tax online, make a change of address for council tax or cancel single person discount. You are still able to make a payment during this time. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Councillors' allowances

We are required by law to publish the sum paid to each county councillor.

Councils are required to establish and maintain an independent remuneration panel to provide them with advice on allowance schemes and the amounts to be paid. See further background and information from reports to the following county council meetings:
