TV Licence

We understand that paying for those extra bills can become a burden for the elderly within our community, that’s why we provide a contribution towards the cost of a television licence for pensioners subject to certain conditions. The contribution is made per licence. Therefore only one contribution per household can be made each year.

You must meet the following 3 criteria:

  1. Be at least 60 years old at the time of purchasing the TV licence.
  2. Have an income of no more than £271.15 per week (from 1 April 2017). In the case of a couple, this is a joint income level. For this purpose income includes, all income received except any disability pensions or allowances which are ignored.
  3. Must reside within Bolsover District and must be a householder (either owner/occupier or tenant) or be living in a separate part of the premises for which a separate licence is required.

The contribution is restricted to £12, irrespective of whether you have a black and white or colour television licence. You will receive a cheque for £12.00 to your home address within 10 working days. Your TV licence will be returned to you at the same time. 

Please apply for your contributuion using our TV Licence application form.
