Council Tax Energy Rebate

Payment Dates for the Council Tax Rebate

The Council has started making payments of the £150 Council Tax Energy Rebate to those residents in Council Tax bands A to D who paid their Council Tax by Direct Debit on 1 April, 15 April and 28 April.

Please note, although we are paying these as quickly as we can, checks do have to be carried out to ensure payments are made in accordance with Central Government guidelines.

If you paid your Council Tax by Direct Debit on 1 or 15 April, you should have already received the £150 rebate in your bank account. If you haven’t, it will be because we need to carry out further checks.

If you pay your Council Tax by Direct Debit on 28 April, the Council will be making these payments of £150 to customers by the middle of May.

If you have not yet received your payment, please do not contact us, as that will delay getting your payment to you. If we need further information we will contact you, but remember we will NOT ask for your bank account number or sort code over the phone.

If you have applied or are applying for the Council Tax Energy Rebate but do not pay your Council Tax by Direct Debit, we will shortly update this webpage with when we are starting to make payments to non-Direct Debit payers.

On 3 February the Government announced measures to help protect millions of households from rising energy costs. These measures include a £150 Council Tax Rebate which will be paid from April.

You can find all the information about the rebate using the buttons below.
