Council Tax Rebate Scheme

A Council Tax Rebate Scheme of £150 is available to help residents in Council Tax Bands A-D with the rise in energy costs. The rebate has now been awarded to those who pay by direct debit. Residents who do not pay by direct debit will be written to later in May to confirm how they can receive the payment.
