Government money announced for storm-flooded areas

Storm-hit business and homeowners can apply for funding from the government to repair damage and make their homes more resilient in future.

Local Government Secretary has triggered Flood Recovery Framework to support areas hit by Storm Dennis and Storm Ciara.

  • Flood-hit homes and businesses can apply for up to £5,000 to help make them more resilient to future flooding

  • Flood-hit households can apply for up to £500 and 100% council tax relief

  • Flooded businesses can apply for up to £2,500 and 100% business rates relief

Storms Dennis and Ciara have severely impacted a large number of households and businesses – and I recognise how destabilising this can be.
