Claim Flood Support Now

Flooding Portland

8:52am 30th September 2014

Weymouth and Portland home owners and businesses can still claim financial help for the damage caused by last winter's storms.

The council-run flood support schemes can help with clean-up costs, business rate or council tax relief.

They've already been publicised but the council wants to make sure that everyone who can claim does so.

There are eligibility criteria for the various schemes, the damage must have been internal and have happened between December 2013 and March 2014.

Leader of West Dorset District Council Robert Gould told Wessex FM;

“I would like to remind people that these flood support schemes are still open to applications

“If your house or business was flooded last winter it’s worth finding out if you are eligible to get help under one or other of the schemes.

Weymouth & Portland Brief holder for Environment and Sustainability Ian Roebuck said

“The severe weather caused a lot of damage last winter

“With our partners the borough council continues to be busy making sure sea defences are repaired, fit and ready for this winter

“I want to make sure that those who experienced flooding inside their homes last winter take advantage of the schemes to help make their properties more resilient to future flood events too.
