Thousands of households across Gedling borough have today started receiving their £150 council tax rebate to help reduce the impact of national energy cost increases.
In the spring statement the Chancellor announced that households paying council tax in bands A to D would receive a one-off £150 council tax energy rebate to support families as food and energy prices are rising.
Those paying their tax by direct debit will start receiving their payments from today from Gedling Borough Council.
For those who are eligible and do not pay council tax via direct debit, Gedling Borough Council will be writing to them to explain what to do to get their payment.
People are being urged not to call Gedling Borough Council to chase their payment as it will be made payment as soon as possible.
As well as the £150 payment for all residents in bands A-D, Government have allocated Gedling Borough Council with £172,800 discretionary funding. This will be used to award an extra £23 to those households in bands A-D who are receiving Council Tax Support as well as paying £173 to all those households receiving Council Tax Support in properties with a band higher than band D.
