Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: No


The Council has been allocated £201,750 of grant funding from a £144m discretionary fund from the Government ‘to provide support to other energy bill payers who are not eligible under the terms of the core band A – D energy rebate scheme'. Crawley Borough Council has worked with all other West Sussex Districts and Boroughs to agree a joint scheme. A scheme was approved in March 2022, however, there has been low take up across the County for this joint scheme, therefore the scheme has been amended to allow a top-up for those on Council Tax Reduction.


The Leader has agreed in consultation with the Chief Executive and the Head of Corporate Finance to:


a)     Approve the Council’s Energy Revised Rebate Discretionary Scheme Guidelines.


b)     Give delegated authority to designated senior officers to make relief awards within these guidelines.
