A council has confirmed that 80% of Council Tax Energy Bill Rebate payments have been made.

Newark and Sherwood District Council said the payments, valuing more than £7m in total, have been paid out to the majority of eligible households as of June 28.

The council said: "It will be difficult to say when all payments will be complete because for those who do not pay by direct debit, we are relying on those households to come forward to claim their payment."

The council says 80% of eligible residents have received the rebate.

Eligible residents not using direct debit can claim the £150 rebate by taking the letter that has, or will be issued to them, along with two forms of ID to the post office where they will be given their payment in cash.

The last batch of letters inviting just over 2,000 households to claim the rebate will be sent out next week. The letters have been sent out in batches, the council said, to ensure that the post office is not overwhelmed.

Those eligible for the payment include residents in Council Tax bands A to D (or band E where a disabled band reduction is applied), where the property was their sole or main residence on April 1, 2022.

Residents who pay less than £150 Council Tax, or receive a single person discount, or do not pay because they receive Council Tax support, will still be entitled to the payment.

The payment will not be made for empty or second homes, or to non-resident landlords.
