Support for homes and businesses affected by flooding
- Community Recovery Grant – £500 for each eligible household to help communities with their immediate recovery.
- Business Recovery Grant – £2,500 per eligible small and medium sized businesses which have suffered severe impacts from the floods that cannot be recovered from insurance.
- Property Flood Resilience Scheme – Flood-hit homes and businesses can apply for up to £5,000 to help make them more resilient to flooding by helping to pay for a range of property improvements. It will go towards the additional costs of installing fittings and materials that increase resistance to damage from water in the future, such as putting in flood doors and raising electrics off ground level.
- Households and businesses significantly affected by recent flooding will be eligible for 100% council tax and business rates relief for at least three months
