This table provides information, in counts and percentages, on properties in Council tax bands from A – H. Council Tax bands help to determine how much Council Tax is paid each year. Council Tax valuations are based on the price a property, as it existed on 1 April 1993, would have fetched if it had been sold on the open market on 1 April 1991. Each dwelling in England and Wales is assigned to one of eight bands as follows: England Band A Up to £40,000 Band B £40,001 to £52,000 Band C £52,001 to £68,000 Band D £68,001 to £88,000 Band E £88,001 to £120,000 Band F £120,001 to £160,000 Band G £160,001 to £320,000 Band H £320,001 and above Dwelling is accommodation which is normally lived in by one or more households and includes houses, flats, bungalows and maisonettes. Temporary structures such as caravans and houseboats are counted as dwellings if they are the sole or main residence of a household. The precise definition that applies to this dataset is set out in Section 3 of the 1992 Local Government Finance Act. It is based on the definition of a ‘hereditament’ contained in the legislation for rates.
