Council Tax Energy Bill Rebate
On 3 February 2022 the government announced a support package for 2022 to 2023 worth £9.1billion. This will help households with rising energy bills.
This package includes a £150 payment for residents living in Council Tax bands A to D. This amount is a one-off payment, and is not a loan.
The payment will apply to residents of properties occupied as main homes as at 1 April 2022. It will not apply to second homes or empty properties.
You can check your Council Tax band with the Valuation Office Agency (VOA). However, we would advise you not to contact the VOA to enquire about a band review, proposal or challenge specifically in order to become eligible for this payment.
Direct Debit payers: Residents who pay their Council Tax by Direct Debit will likely receive their payment in their bank account from April.
If you are not already a Direct Debit payer you can set up your Direct Debit.
Non-Direct Debit payers: For residents who do not pay by Direct Debit, we will contact you from April with details of how to claim your payment
Please do not contact us at this time. We will update this page when we have further details regarding the scheme.
