Flooding November 2019
Financial support is available for residents and businesses affected by the recent flooding in Nottinghamshire.
If you have been affected by the recent flooding, you may be able to apply for a recovery grant to help with your immediate needs.
Newark and Sherwood Community Recovery Grant
The Community Recovery Grant is for residential properties and is being administered by Newark and Sherwood District Council.
The grant is up to £500 and paid direct to the household. Households are eligible where flood water has entered the property, or the residence is considered unliveable for any period of time due to flooding.
The grant does not apply to empty homes, second homes or student accommodation.
Council tax discount scheme
The council tax discount scheme is for residential properties and is being administered by Newark and Sherwood District Council.
If you have been forced to move out of your home as a result of the recent floods, you will receive 100% discount on your council tax for a minimum of three months – this means you do not have to pay council tax during this period.
