Flood resilience repair grant scheme

{Play}Help with getting a surveyor

Sharing information from Wiltshire Council about Defra’s Property Flood Resilience (PFR) Repair Grant Scheme for those impacted by Storm Babet (Oct 2023) and Storm Henk (Jan 2024)

 

The property flood resilience repair grants are intended to fund measures which improve the property’s resilience or resistance to flooding, over and above repairs that would normally be covered by insurance.

It is a requirement of the PFR grant scheme to have a survey carried out by a suitably qualified surveyor.  However, we understand nationally and locally, home and business owners have been unsuccessful is sourcing surveyors or costs far exceed the grant allowance.  To overcome this, we have been working our consultants and their approved surveyors to undertake surveys of our PFR Grant Scheme eligible applicants.

We are still working through the details with our consultants, although we anticipate surveys will be carried out in Town/Parish cluster sites of 5 or more, reducing time and costs of the surveys whilst providing consistent survey information.

Cluster sites of 5+ will be required, so we are asking Town & Parish Councils to work with their neighbours to ensure applicants remain eligible.

Therefore, we would strongly encourage anyone who has not completed the attached PFR Application to do so, to be considered eligible for the grant and survey. Due to the number of applications being received, we are offering two closing dates, Weds 1st May and Fri 3rd June for final closing of applications.
