Richmondshire District Council

Apply for your utility energy rebate

In order for the Council to make a payment into your bank account please ensure you provide all the information as requested on the online application form. If you do not provide us with this information it will either lead to a delay in your request being approved, or the request will not be granted at all. 

We will ask for:

  • your council tax bill reference number (this is shown on your council tax bill)
  • your bank account details so we can make a direct payment
  • an access key (this is highlighted in bold in the recent energy rebate payment letter that we have sent to you)

This information is needed in order to approve your request, to protect against fraud and the abuse of public funds, and to allow the Government to monitor the rebate requests being made.

You must apply for this rebate by 31 August 2022
