Council tax is a local property tax. Council tax applies to all residential properties such as houses, bungalows, flats, maisonettes, houseboats and mobile homes, regardless of whether they are rented or owned.

Council tax energy rebate

On 3 February 2022 the government announced support to help households with rising energy bills including a one-off £150 energy rebate payment to council tax payers in bands A-D.

We have now paid energy rebate payments to over 30,000 households who pay council tax by direct debit and are now inviting eligible households who don’t pay by direct debit to apply for the payment.

Please visit our dedicated energy bills rebate page on our website for more details and to complete the application form.
