ELIGIBLE residents who pay their council tax by direct debit will have received their £150 rebate by today, it has been confirmed.
Barnsley Council has started making the payments into bank accounts - and those who don’t pay by direct debit but instead submitted an application should expect their funds during the first week of May.
A spokesperson for the council said: “We have created a dedicated line for any urgent queries.
“Call our helpline number - 787787 - and select option six.
“Please only use this if your query is urgent or you require help in completing the application form.”
We have been at the heart of our community, every week, since 1858. The town and its people have changed dramatically since then but the Chronicle has been a constant.
It’s our belief that news should be available to everyone regardless of their circumstance. But we need a little helping hand to do so.
Production Editor, Ashley Ball, said: "In an ever changing media world, it’s important that news is reported correctly and without any hidden agenda.
Your support allows us to keep holding decision-makers to account and report on everything that happens in the town, good or bad, fairly."
