Property Flood Resilience Recovery Support Scheme 2020

To approve expenditure and approach to delivering the Property Flood Resilience Recovery Support Scheme 2020 (‘PFRRSS’).


Severe weather has meant hardship for local residents and businesses. The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (‘Defra’) has committed funding to the council in recognition that a significant number of the county’s household and businesses have been severely affected and to provide support through this grant scheme. The council will make payments in line with Defra’s guidance and based on a robust grant assessment criteria.
