Scheme of Emergency Financial Assistance: Householders
The way in which the scheme which offers financial assistance to domestic properties / householders affected by flooding has changed.
In order for affected householders to apply under the scheme, the Council must first activate the scheme (SEFA). Householders who are severely inconvenienced by flooding caused by rainfall must notify the Council as soon as possible (and not later than 7 calendar days) if they wish to apply for a payment under the scheme.
A payment of £1,000 to individual householders severely inconvenienced by flooding caused by rainfall can be made, subject to the individual household applicant fulfilling the criteria of the scheme.
Full details on how the scheme operates and the criteria to be applied will be uploaded in the 'related documents' section below whenever the scheme is activated. A copy of the application form is available below.
Any householder affected by flooding who wishes to submit an application under the scheme must notify the Council as soon as possible and not later than 7 calendar days from the last recorded date of their flooding incident.
