Council tax energy rebate
The government announced properties in council tax bands A to D may be eligible for a council tax energy rebate payment of £150 to support rising energy costs. Eligible households can apply for the rebate online.
We have now paid over 15,000 households their £150 energy rebate payment.
Eligible households which don't pay their council tax by direct debit should now have received a reminder letter inviting them to apply for the council tax energy rebate payment online. When you receive your letter, it will have a new unique code for you to use.
Applications for the energy rebate payment will close on 28 August. If you do not apply, we will credit the £150 payment as a council tax credit for eligible properties. This will be applied to your council tax account by the end of September 2022.
We will be making our next payments on Wednesday 10 August, followed by a final payment run on Wednesday 31 August.
If you don't already pay by direct debit, why not sign up?
More financial support may soon be available for households not eligible for the rebate. We'll publish more info as soon as we receive it.
Properties which are unoccupied or exempt will not qualify.
