Show all parts of this guide

1. £150 Council Tax Energy Rebate

The applications to apply for the £150 energy payments have now closed and it is now too late to apply.

If we think you are eligible for the Energy Rebate, the unclaimed payment may have been applied to the Council Tax account as a direct payment and you will receive a new Council Tax Bill showing the £150 rebate.

If you receive this payment and do not believe you are eligible, please use this contact us form.

Who was eligible for the Energy Payment?

Households in Council Tax bands A to D and those in band E who receive Disablement Reduction, could have received a one payment of the £150 rebate which was intended to support all occupants of the household.

Discretionary Scheme

A Discretionary Energy Rebate scheme is available to support residents in Council Tax bands E-H who receive Council Tax Reduction and certain residents who do not pay council tax but are directly responsible for payment of energy bills. Further information on this scheme is here.

Phase1 of the Discretionary Scheme ended on 30 September 2022 and once we have decided the plan for phase 2, our website will be updated.
