Storm Henk Flood Support

 Funded by UK Government

Storm Henk

Financial Support for Residents and Businesses

The Government has announced a package of support for people who have suffered internal flood damage to their homes and businesses, as a direct result of Storm Henk.

If you or your property were affected by the recent floods, you may be eligible for a Community Recovery Grant, Council Tax Discount or Business Rates Relief. This funding is being administered by Bassetlaw District Council.

Anyone whose property suffered internal flood damage as a direct result of Storm Henk between the dates of 2nd January 2024 and 8th January 2024, may be eligible to apply for the following support:

Households

Community Recovery Grant and Council Tax Discount

Flooded households that meet the criteria can apply for a grant of £500 to help with immediate costs and 100% discount Council Tax for a minimum of three months – this means you do not have to pay Council Tax during this period.

After three months, if you have not been able to return home, you may not have to pay Council Tax until you move back. If you are not able to move back into your home after three months, please tell us so that this discount may be extended.

The support does not apply to empty homes, second homes or student accommodation.

If you are not able to complete the form online, please contact our Customer Services Team on 01909 533533.

What we need from you

We will ask you to provide details about you, your affected property, bank account details and your Council Tax reference number, so that we can consider your claim and make payment to you if you are eligible.

For more information on how Bassetlaw District Council will store and process your personal data, please see our Privacy Notice.

Please note: properties will need to be verified as flooded before the Community Recovery Grant is paid.

Businesses

Business Rates Relief & Business Recovery Grant

Businesses significantly affected by flooding as a direct result of Storm Henk may be eligible for 100% business rates relief for at least three months.

Small-to-medium sized businesses in affected areas will be eligible for up to £2,500 from the Business Recovery Grant to help them return quickly to business as usual.

Businesses can access these grants and business rates relief through our website by filling in the online application form.

Please note: properties will need to be verified as flooded before the Business Recovery Grant is paid.
