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.

Article 4 directions

Within a number of Conservation areas, Allerdale Borough Council, as the local planning authority, has introduced Article 4 directions to individual properties.

What does an Article 4 direction mean?

This is a special form of planning control that the council has introduced to remove permitted development rights in order to prevent the loss of architectural features.

External works and/or alterations that would normally not require planning permission (re-rendering, replacement door and windows, re-roofing) may require it if the property has an Article 4 direction.

Use the map below to see if your property is covered by an Article 4 direction.

If so, it is always advisable to check with the planning department before starting any works and/or alterations to the property.
