When will I get the payment?

For the discretionary payments to band E-H properties any residents paying by direct debit will receive the money automatically by week ending 31st July 2022

A letter is being sent to non-direct debit payers in bands E - H, advising how to apply for the payment. They will be able to complete an on-line application form but please note the page may be slow to load due to the number of applications we are expecting in the opening days. We would ask for your patience or to consider returning at another time if you experience any persistent problems. Click the following link to access the form Discretionary energy rebate form for band E-H properties | Torridge District Council

For those residents in A-D properties who meet the above criteria and have already received £150 from the standard scheme they will automatically receive the additional £20 in their bank account.  For those who did not apply, the £20 will be credited to their council tax account.

Please do not contact the Council to chase these payments or letters, as we are currently experiencing a high level of calls. 

The discretionary scheme will close on 18th September 2022, so please make sure you apply prior to this date.

No awards will be made for any unoccupied premises or second homes.
