Thousands of households in Gedling borough will receive a council tax rebate of £150 this spring as part of a package of measures designed to combat the cost of living crisis.

The payment is intended to ease the financial strain caused by factors such as the energy price cap rise, which comes into effect from April.

Rishi Sunak announced the measures at the start of February, on the same day that Ofgem confirmed the major hike to the price cap.

  1. Still waiting , they’ve taken the direct debit out last week for council tax this month so have details

  2. Still waiting for my rebate, started paying in April allegedly. It’s now June and I still haven’t heard anything. if i owed the council they’d soon be on my back.

  3. Many councils have paid this already and Gedling says testing the IT system. Mike Kennedy is right, they soon chase and threaten if a couple of weeks late. Not a VFM council
