We understand this is a very difficult time for many of our residents.
The coronavirus is having a significant impact on the economy and is putting a strain on all our services. As more people are forced to self-isolate, society needs more support than ever before. Our staff are doing their bit to protect the most vulnerable and to make sure essential services like bin collections and housing repairs can continue.
With this in mind, it is also important to remember that your council tax pays for essential services that we deliver to all people across Kirklees.
If you can still afford to pay your council tax, it is more important than ever that you continue to pay your bill. If you are struggling to pay your council tax or any other bills due to the impact of coronavirus, there is support available.
If you are vulnerable and require support please go to COVID-19 Community Response to find out more information
