Help with Council Tax

Council Tax billThe Government is providing a £500 million Hardship Fund to help UK households on the lowest incomes. The fund will enable us to support local people by quickly reducing or removing the need for you to pay Council Tax if you are on a low income.

If you are struggling to pay Council Tax during the Covid-19 pandemic then please visit our website at to apply for Council Tax Support.

If you are already in receipt of Council Tax Support, or other eligible benefits, then you do not need to do anything and we will automatically apply a discount (up to an additional £150) to qualifying accounts.

West Sussex County Council (WSCC) reopened Household Waste Recycling Sites (HWRS) across West Sussex on Monday 11th May.

Although the waste sites are open, WSCC is asking you to consider if your journey is absolutely essential before making the trip. 

From Monday 1st June, the range of items will be extended to include garden waste, general household waste, wood, cardboard, electrical items, bulky items, and furniture. The HWRS are currently unable to accept soil / hardcore, plasterboard, asbestos, tyres or textiles for the time being. ID will be required from all vehicles attending site

Vans and pickups will be permitted on the sites, but will need to display their WSCC permit to access the site. Trailers will continue to be rejected for the time being due to the operational changes made to sites.

Normal summer opening hours will be in operation. Once at the sites there will be certain measures in place for the safety of visitors and staff.
