Grants for flood work available

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Copeland homeowners will be given a helping hand to make their homes more flood resilient thanks to a new government grant scheme.

People whose homes and businesses were flooded between 1 December 2013 and 31 March 2014 can now apply for a government grant of up to £5,000 through Copeland Borough Council.
The purpose of the grant is to help people with the cost of buying and installing new measures to reduce the chances of flooding in the first place, or limit the damage should they be flooded in the future.
This could include things like a new driveway barrier or replacing doors and windows with water resistant alternatives, or moving electricity sockets to a safer level.

Find out more in these guidance notes, and find the application form here.
