Council tax rebate for properties in bands A-D

The government announced a fund to help with increased home energy costs. Eligible households were entitled to a £150.00. The closing date for application was midnight on 31 August 2022.

What happens if you didn’t apply

Any eligible households who have not made a claim will have the rebate paid to their council tax account by 30 September 2022.

If you pay by direct debit your final instalment will be automatically adjusted.

If you pay by another method you can adjust your October/November instalment by £150.00 to pay less.

If you have already paid for this year the payment will show as a credit on next year’s bill.

The government provided funding for us to operate a discretionary fund for households in need who are not eligible for the Council Tax energy rebate.
