There is no timeline for when discretionary fund payments should start but the guidance that has been given to councils stated that they will need to spend the money by November 30, 2022 or return it to Central Government.

How much each council received for their discretionary fund depended on multiple factors.

Smaller areas, such as the Isles of Scilly received around £17,550 whilst areas like the City of London received a bigger sum of around £33,300.

The largest allocation was in Birmingham with £3.6million, and Tower Hamlets got the second largest pot at £2.8million.
