People eligible for the cash are those living in properties rated in Council Tax bands A to D and they do not need to pay the money back.
“The first batch will be for those who paid by direct debit on April 1 and 8.
“We anticipate these payments should start to clear into bank accounts over the next few weeks.
"Once these batches have been processed we will then arrange payments for those who pay their instalment on either April 15 or 22.”
Those eligible residents who do not pay by direct debit should receive a letter from the council shortly to explain how to organise their payment.
