Council Tax Energy Rebate - Information from Central Government
****IMPORTANT NOTICES PLEASE READ****
Energy Rebate information
From 1 April 2022, a single £150 council tax rebate was available to most households living in properties in council tax bands A to D.
If the application for the rebate was not made by eligible households before 30 September 2022 then the rebate has been applied to their council tax account.
The main scheme has now closed and no further payments can be made.
Phase 2 closed for applications on Monday 31 October 2022.
Phase 3 closed for applications on Friday 26 November 2022.
Central government announced on 3 February 2022 various schemes to assist people with the rising cost of living. This includes 80% of households receiving a £150.00 Council Tax rebate from April.
