No. Your arrears need to be paid separately. It could be that they are being dealt with already by our enforcement agents, or you already have an arrangement to pay the arrears. If this doesn't apply, please pay immediately, or contact us on 01628 683 850 to discuss payment. We may be able to set up an instalment plan.
