October 2023 Flood Support

 Funded by UK Government

Storm Babet - Property Flood Resilience (PFR) Repair Grant Funding

Please note: To apply for Storm Babet PFR funding, properties must have reported to Nottinghamshire County Council as flooded prior to 21st January 2024.

Nottinghamshire County Council are administering the grants for this scheme. The grant is £5,000 including VAT, with £500 available towards survey costs. Nottinghamshire County Council will arrange surveys on behalf of property owners and have advised that the cost of the survey will be £840 including VAT, which you will need to pay as an upfront payment. If PFR works recommended in the survey are completed at your property, you will receive £500 back in grant to cover part of the survey costs, the remaining £340 will be met by you as the property owner.

The balance of the grant after survey costs will be £4,500 including VAT, and will be available for PFR works at your property. The surveyors will work with property owners to incorporate PFR measures within the grant funding available as well as identifying any additional PFR works that the customer could choose. Any costs in excess of the £4,500 available for works will need to be met by the property owner.

If for any reason you do not have PFR works completed at your property following the survey, no grant will be made available and the full survey cost of £840 will be non-refundable.

If you previously received Property Flood Resilience (PFR) grant under a previous PFR scheme, this may mean that you are not eligible for the grant again for measures at the same property. Where a survey suggests that extra resilience measures should be installed over and above what was previously installed under a PFR Grant Scheme, or a new source of flooding is identified, eligibility will be considered on a case-by-case basis by Nottinghamshire County Council. In the event that your property is not eligible for funding, the full survey cost will fall to the property owner.

In light of the survey cost, if you are still happy to proceed with your PFR application, Bassetlaw District Council will share the details in your expression of interest with Nottinghamshire County Council, including your personal contact details. The County Council will then contact you directly to arrange survey bookings and payment and answer any specific questions about PFR works at your property.
