*The Council's strategy is to shift from residents having to attend its offices and paying manually, or ringing a council member of staff and paying by card, to carrying out more transactions online. One of the advantages of this is that it is cheaper and more efficient for the Council to accept payments for services online as it costs more to process payments manually or by telephone.

Please ensure that the card you intend to pay with is 3D Secure enabled. If you are unsure, please check with your card issuer as your payment may be declined if this is not activated.
