Please state amount

Please note that if we agree an arrangement, we will still ask the court to grant a liability order (which will incur additional costs of £65). This is done to protect the council's interests. All costs incurred (a total of £125) will be included in any arrangement to pay. The council will notify you in due course if your offer to clear the arrears is acceptable, but we may not accept your offer of payment if it will take too long to clear the amount owed.

*If you have selected to pay your arrangement monthly you can set up a Direct Debit – please note that the DD instalment will be taken on the 1st of each month. If you have selected to make your arrangement weekly or fortnightly you will need to pay by an alternative method.
