MyAshford is an online customer portal that gives residents access to the various accounts held with the council in one place. Once residents set up an account they can view council tax, rent balance, see who their local councillor is, apply for parking permits and more.

Why have we created a new MyAshford?

The old MyAshford system has become outdated and needed a revamp so we have built a new portal from the ground up. With so many different systems associated with the council we are trying to make the customer journey easier by applying single sign-on technology – this will enable you to log into the portal and then you’ll be able to access your linked accounts without having to log in again.

We currently have single sign-on set-up for the new Council Tax system, Citizen Access.

New MyAshford features

The new portal has the following features:

  • Integrated management of your council tax or business rates account.
  • Check your bin collection dates.
  • Find out who your local councillor is.
  • See where your nearest health services and education establishments are located.
