We are currently carrying out the annual canvass of electors to update the electoral register. Please note that your canvass form may state that you or other people in your house are over 76. We gather this information for jury service purposes and our system defaults to this category if we do not hold a date of birth for an elector. If this information is incorrect please make the necessary amendments on the paper form and send it back to us in the envelope provided.
Difficulty paying your bill
At Allerdale we aim to provide information and support for people who are struggling to pay Council Tax. If you are having difficulty it might be useful to read the information on our budget advice page.
If you are on a low income you may qualify for Council Tax Reduction Scheme. For details of other reductions and exemptions from your Council Tax bill see our discounts and exemptions information page.
You may also be entitled to benefits.
If you are unable to pay your Council Tax, or any other payment owed to us, you should contact us as soon as possible to discuss your personal circumstances. You can do this by calling 0303 123 1702.
