Discretionary Council Tax Rebate – applications invited by 5 July

Just to repeat a useful previous News item (10 June), the District Council has set up a support fund for eligible residents who do not qualify for the recent Government £150 Council Tax rebate.    Applications must be made by 5th July.

Eligibility criteria include the following:

You live in a property in Council Tax bands in Bands E to H where:

• Council Tax Support is paid

• A disabled band reduction is awarded

• A Carer disregard is applied

• A Severely Mentally Impaired (SMI) disregard is applied


You are on a low income or income related benefits and pay the energy bills on a property as your main residence but do not pay the council tax on the property


You are living in supported or emergency accommodation.


You are in receipt of low income or income related benefits and reside in a house of multiple occupation (HMO) and other properties where the landlord, property owner or employer is the Council Tax payer.

Full details can be found on the District Council’s website here:

Or, if you struggle to go online, you can phone the District Council’s main switchboard number – 01993 861000 – and say you want to talk about the Discretionary Council Tax Rebate scheme. They can then tell you if you are eligible and, if you are, can go through the application form with you over the phone.
