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.

Light pollution

Measures are required to ensure that light pollution is kept to a minimum.

However, certain premises have high levels of light intensity for safety and security reasons.

Problem lighting that may be viewed as a statutory nuisance is assessed during an investigation and explores possible factors, including:

  • Activities the light pollution is intruding upon
  • Duration of issue
  • Time at which it occurs
  • Character of the area

Street lighting engineers design all street lighting installations to take into account the current BS EN13201:2003 regulations.

You can use our report a nuisance form to report possible light pollution issues.
