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.

Smoke control areas

Some parts of Allerdale are smoke control areas which mean you cannot emit smoke from a chimney unless you are using an authorised fuel or using 'exempt' appliances. You must not buy an unauthorised fuel for use in a smoke control area, unless it is to be used in an exempt appliance. You can find out more about smoke control areas on the GOV.UK website.

If you think there is an issue with smoke in these areas, you can report it to us.
