By post

Pay by cheque through the post. Cheques should be made payable to Stockport Council and sent to:

Write your name, address and account number on the back of the cheque. Cheques must not be post-dated. Please enclose a stamped self addressed envelope if you want a receipt.

On a range of dates

If you would like to pay weekly or fortnightly, please contact the office and this can be arranged for you.
