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.

Infrastructure Funding Statement

The Council is required to produce an Infrastructure Funding Statement to summarise the details of s106 Agreements attached to planning permissions in each year; s106 Agreements secure contributions towards necessary infrastructure to accommodate new development.

The Statement will identify:

  • new s106 Agreements signed in the monitoring year;
  • money received by the Council from s106 Agreements;
  • money which has been spent by the Council on infrastructure projects;
  • money which the Council has received from s106 Agreements but is still to spend it on infrastructure projects; and
  • any non-financial contributions detailed in s106 Agreements (including affordable homes).

As the requirement to produce a Statement was introduced on 1st September 2019, the first Infrastructure Funding Statement covers the period 1st April 2019-31st March 2020. The Statement will be updated annually and published on the Council’s website.

To support the Statement, the Council is required to publish a set of Excel documents to identify the developer agreements, the contributions received and the transactions which took place in the monitoring year.
