HUNTINGDONSHIRE RESIDENTS BEGIN TO RECEIVE £150 ENERGY 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.

“Only those who receive letters will need to complete the form, and people don’t need to contact us – we will contact them. The Council will never call you on the telephone or send you a text message to ask for your bank details in order to pay the Council Tax energy payment.”
