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. The £150 will be made as a one-off payment.

People who pay their council tax by direct debit will have the £150 paid into their bank account automatically. We have now started to make these payments and are expecting all these to be issued by the end of this week.

Residents who do not pay by direct debit will need to apply for the rebate. The application form will be available on this website later in May. People will have the option of having the money paid into their bank account or receiving it as a credit on their 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 the website as soon has the scheme has been agreed.
