Flood relief scheme to be launched

HOMEOWNERS and businesses affected by flooding between December and March will be eligible for the Repair and Renew Grant, announced by the prime minister earlier this month.

David Cameron has said up to £5,000 is being made available to improve individual properties resistance to poor weather conditions.

The grants are only to fund measures which improve resilience to flooding and not repairs that would normally be covered by insurance.

Isle of Wight MP Andrew Turner said many people contacted his office asking for details, but they had not yet been finalised.

Properties will be eligible for a tailored report on the most appropriate way to protect them.

He urged all those eligible to apply for the grant when it is launched on April 1. It will be administered by the Isle of Wight Council.
