Flood Recovery for domestic and commercial properties
The Government has announced financial support and tax relief for flood-hit homes and businesses if your property was flooded between 19 October and 25 October 2023 as a direct result of Storm Babet, you may be eligible for some support. The support will be made available through a scheme known as the Flood Recovery Framework, which is used in exceptional circumstances to support councils and communities following severe flooding. Please contact your local council to see if you can apply. You will be asked to provide evidence of the flooding – this may include photographs and a copy of your insurance claim.
Lincolnshire Rural Support Network has a helpline: (0800 138 1710) that provides pastoral and practical support to Lincolnshire’s farming and horticultural communities during periods of anxiety, stress and problems relating to their families and businesses. You can also e-mail [email protected] or visit their website www.lsrn.co.uk
