Discretionary Council Tax Rebate
The Government has provided Chorley Council with a limited amount of discretionary funding to support vulnerable residents on low incomes who do not pay Council Tax or are living in property valued in bands E to H.
We have designed a targeted scheme to provide a one-off discretionary payment to support vulnerable and low-income households in the following groups:
Discretionary Council Tax Rebate payment
|Households in band E - H in receipt of Council Tax Support on 1 April 2022||£150|
|Households in band E - H in receipt of a Council Tax disregard on 1 April 2022 because a resident is a carer or severely mentally impaired||£150|
|Households in band F - H in receipt of Disabled Relief on 1 April 2022||£150|
|A top up payment to all Council Tax Support claimants||£22.30|

All other eligible households will be sent details of how to Apply for the Discretionary Council Tax Rebate on 13 October 2022.
You will need your Council Tax reference number for the property you occupied on 1 April 2022 which you can find on your bill.
