Council tax arrears appeal

Denbighshire County Council is urging any county resident experiencing difficulties in paying council tax to get in touch, so that special arrangements for payments can be made.

The appeal comes after the Council  recovered debts of £23,000 through the issuing of Charging Orders.

Councillor Julian Thompson-Hill, Cabinet Lead Member for Finance, said: "These Orders are very much a last resort for the Council, as they mean that residents cannot re-mortgage or sell their properties without paying their council tax arrears first.

"The majority of residents do pay their council tax on time.  Some people do experience difficulties in paying, whilst others wilfully do not pay their council tax without a valid reason.

"We have a duty to recover the council tax owed to us and our appeal is  for people experiencing real difficulties to get in touch at the earliest opportunity. This will mean there are options available and there may be a special arrangement that can be put in place, taking into consideration people's personal circumstances."

To discuss, please call the Recovery Team on 01824 706321 or 706436.
