Need help with rising energy costs?
This Spring, all occupied homes in Council Tax Bands A-D will receive a £150 payment to put towards energy bills. If you pay your Council Tax by Direct Debit, the money will go straight into your bank account. If you pay another way, it may take longer to get the payment. Sign-up today to pay by Direct Debit to receive the payment as soon as it becomes available.
