£25 Discretionary Council Tax rebate to help with energy costs

The government has given us funding to operate a discretionary scheme to support our low-income households with energy costs.

How much can I get?

If you meet the eligibility criteria you get a payment of £25.

Eligibility criteria

To be eligible for a discretionary payment, you will need to meet both the following criteria:

  • You have been in receipt of Council Tax Support since 1 April 2022
  • Your property is in band A to H

Please note, that we’ve already identified the households that meet the above eligibility criteria.

How to apply 

You don't need to apply for this as we'll be automatically paying this into your bank account directly if we've got your bank details. If you pay your Council Tax by direct debit or we've already paid you the £150 Council Tax rebate to help with energy costs, then we've got your bank details. 

If we don’t hold your bank details we'll credit the payment to your Council Tax account and send you a new Council Tax bill. Your revised bill will show the change to any payments due for the rest of the year.
