Council tax energy rebate

The government have announced a £150 payment to help with energy costs for people whose homes are in council tax bands A to D. The £150 will be made as a one-off payment.

If you pay your council tax by direct debit you will have the £150 paid into your bank account automatically. We are expecting to make these payments in April and May 2022.

If you don't pay by direct debit you'll need to apply for the rebate. An application form will be available on the website in May. You'll have the option of having the money paid into your bank account or receiving it as a credit on your council tax account.

In addition, a discretionary scheme will be available to support vulnerable people on low incomes who do not pay or are exempt from council tax, or whose properties are in E to H.

We will update this page as soon as we have agreed the discretionary scheme.
