£150 Council Tax Energy rebate

The Government announced on 3 February measures to help protect millions of households from rising energy costs. This includes a ‘£150 council tax energy rebate’. 

Over the coming weeks we will start to make the £150 rebate payment to qualifying households. This will be a payment rather than a reduction in your Council Tax bill, based on Council Tax information we hold. This rebate will not need to be repaid by those who are eligible.

Please be aware that scammers are reported to be cold-calling people asking for their bank details to receive the energy grant. We will never ring and ask for your bank details.

See our Council Tax energy rebate page for details of who qualifies and how payments will be made.

Please do not phone us as we will update this website as soon as we have further information.

SMS from Council Tax

We are using SMS (texts) to contact our customers about late instalments. Text messaging is a cheaper and often more convenient way of getting in touch with residents. It is used by a growing number of Government and private sector organisations to send brief advice messages to customers.
