Rates bill date change We have changed our rates instalment dates to 15 October, 15 February and 15 May and we’ll be sending out the rates notices in September, January and April. This is to avoid a rates bill just before Christmas. We have recalculated direct debits and written to the affected ratepayers to tell them the new payment amounts.
