Council tax energy rebate payment

Discretionary fund

The discretionary energy rebate scheme for households within council tax bands E to H, is now open.  

If you are a direct debit payer within bands E to H and are currently in receipt of council tax reduction ,  or the property has been adapted to accommodate a disabled person (this includes where it is occupied by people with severe mental impairment), your £150.00 rebate will be paid directly into your bank account, within the next 14 days.  

If you meet the criteria above, but are not a direct debit payer, you will shortly receive a letter inviting you to submit an online application and provide your bank details for payment to be made.  Please refer to the secure online portal application and guidance section.

 All other applications will need to be submitted, by downloading an application form and either emailing or posting it back to the council, with your supporting information and documents. Please refer to the application form and criteria section.
