The £150 Energy Rebate is for qualifying households in Council Tax bands A-D. The rebate will be £150 per household regardless of the number of occupants or council taxpayers named on the bill.
The council has started making Energy Rebate payments for those residents who pay their Council Tax by Direct Debit.
These payments will have appeared in bank accounts from Wednesday, June 1.
For residents who do not pay by Direct Debit, we will write to you before the end of June to ask you to provide your bank details via an online secure process.
If you are unable to provide your details via the online portal, you will need to ring for assistance. The council is in the process of setting up a contact number for this and will provide this number in due course.
This process takes longer because we must verify the bank details you provide to ensure correct payments are made and for counter fraud purposes. However, it is hoped these payments will begin to be made mid to late June.
For those properties who are in bands E - H the Council will publish its discretionary scheme towards the end of July.
