Huntingdonshire Residents begin to receive £150 Energy Payment

Households within the Huntingdonshire District have started to receive their £150 government energy payment today to help with rising energy bills.


Huntingdonshire District Council is responsible for administering the local payments to households living in properties in council tax bands A – D who are entitled to the payment.


Homes in the district are receiving £150 made to the person who is liable for council tax.


The one-off payment does not have to be repaid.


To begin with, the new government energy payment is being made to Huntingdonshire households who have had their first council tax instalment in April and currently pay their council tax to the council by Direct Debit. A payment will be made direct to their bank account - provided it matches to the liable party for council tax bill payments. Just over £6.4million has been paid to those households who are entitled.


Chief operating officer at Huntingdonshire District Council, John Taylor, said: “We are pleased to announce that payments to Direct Debit council tax bill payers have started today.


“We will also be contacting those households who do not make payments by Direct Debit. The letter will explain how these households go about receiving the payment.
