Council tax energy rebate

The government has announced a £150 payment to help with energy costs for people whose homes are in council tax bands A to D and are registered for council tax on the 1 April 2022. The £150 will be made as a one-off payment.

People who pay their Council Tax by Direct Debit have now all had their payments issued.

People who do not pay their Council Tax by Direct Debit will need to apply for the Energy Rebate. - The application form is available via this link. You will have the option to have this money paid directly into your bank account or credited to your Council Tax account.

If you have not completed the online form to claim your rebate by 31 August 2022, the £150 will be credited to your council tax account instead.

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 bands E to H. We will update the website as soon as the scheme has been agreed.
