Government's £150 rebate scheme

Eligible households across Allerdale will begin to receive their £150 energy cost council tax rebate from today (Thursday 12 May). 
 
More than 40,000 households will receive a one-off payment, with the first batch of payments for those in council tax bands A to D who pay for their council tax via direct debit.
 
There are some households whose Direct Debit details have not been verified and these will follow on as soon as possible. Households who don’t pay by direct debit will receive letters containing information on how they can collect the rebate from their local post office in the coming weeks. 

Find out more about the rebate scheme.

Licences - Sunday trading

You can find more information on Sunday trading laws on the gov.uk website

You do not have to inform us if you are to open on a Sunday, and the law regulates the opening hours and not the types of goods on sale.

The Sunday Trading Act 1994 regulates shop opening hours. It does not regulate street markets and car boot sales. These are subject to separate local planning legislation.
