Gloucester residents receive £150 energy rebate
To help residents with the rising cost of living, Gloucester City Council have so far issued over 28,000 energy rebate payments of £150 to eligible council taxpayers.
On 3 February the government announced that households in Council Tax bands A-D will receive a one-off cash payment to help with the increased cost of living.
Gloucester City Council have now issued the first round of energy rebate payments to eligible residents who paid their council tax by direct debit on 1 April.
- Residents who paid their council tax on 15 April will receive their rebate week commencing 2 May.
- Residents who paid their council tax on 22 or 28 April will receive their rebate by Friday 13 May.
Cllr Hannah Norman, Deputy Leader of Gloucester City Council, and Cabinet Member for Performance and Resources, said: “We know people are struggling with the cost of living right now and we want to make sure that residents receive this vital help with their bills. I’m pleased to announce the city council have so far issued over 28,000 energy rebate payments. Those who pay by direct debit will receive this money straight into their bank account, so I would urge residents to sign up as soon as they can.”
Visit Gloucester City Council’s website to sign up for a direct debit or call the council on 01452 396396.
More information on how residents who don’t pay by direct debit will receive their Energy Bills Rebate payment will be available soon on our website Council Tax Energy Rebate - Gloucester City Council.
