Residents who qualified under the Council Tax Rebate scheme or the discretionary scheme will have already received their £150 payment or been contacted on how to claim it. What help is there for those that weren’t eligible?

If you did not qualify for either and are struggling to pay your bills, you may be eligible for the Energy Rebate Exceptional Hardship Scheme.

To qualify you must:

• Be the person liable for paying Council Tax at the property

• Have not already received an energy rebate on this or any other property

• The property must have been listed between bands E-H in the Council Tax valuation list in the Uttlesford area on the 1st April 2022

  • The application must be for your sole or main residence.

You have until 31 October 2022 to apply for the scheme.
