1. Council Tax (Energy) Rebate

On 3 February 2022, Government announced funding for local authorities to support people with the rising costs of energy. The official guidance identifies those who qualify and we and we have been working hard to get the £150 payment to our eligible residents who met the following conditions as of 1 April 2022:

  • Their property is banded A-D or band E with a disablement reduction
  • They are liable to pay council tax at the address
  • The property is their sole or main residence

If you have received your letter with your access code you can now claim your £150 Council Tax Rebate by pressing the blue start button below.

There will be a phased dispatch of letters with the unique access code which you will need to claim your payment. We are not able to provide the access codes over email or phone but if you have not received your letter by 25 May, please let us know by using our contact us form.
