Once the immediate crisis is over, thoughts turn to the future. In order to help protect the home from future flooding events, the Government launched a £5,000 repair and renew grant for all affected homeowners and businesses. This is designed to ensure flood resilience is built into homes and businesses as they are repaired. The grant could be used for a range of measures including door and window guards and self-closing air-bricks.
Applications for the flood repair and renewal grant must be made by April 30, 2014. For more information call Teignbridge Citizens Advice Bureau on 01626 770074 or complete the flood enquiry form on www.teignbridgecab.org.uk
