Your payment must reach us by the 1st day of the month it is due, unless you pay by Direct Debit.

You can pay by Direct Debit on the 1st, 8th, 15th, 20th and 23rd of the month.

We will tell you the amounts you need to pay at the bottom of your bill. If you find it difficult to pay by the dates shown on your bill or want to check the amount you need to pay, contact us using the general enquiries online form. 

If you want to pay the full amount in one payment, please do this by 1 April. If you want to pay half-yearly, pay the value of the first 5 instalments shown on your bill by 1 April and the rest by 1 September.
