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.

  • Weed control (except highways maintained by Cumbria County Council)
  • Litter control and removal of dog faeces
  • Planting of trees, shrubs, bulbs and plants
  • Seeding and marking out of sports pitches
  • Protection of nature conservation sites and reserves.

Report any overgrown grass or plants to us using our General Enquiry form

Maintenance of non-council land

On non-council owned sites, the land owners are responsible for the trees and grounds maintenance. Other green spaces may be the responsibility of housing associations, private landowners or other bodies.

Roadside verges are cut and maintained by Cumbria County Council's highways department .
