The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has activated the Bellwin scheme to reimburse eligible local authorities for the qualifying immediate costs they incurred as part of their response to the recent flooding in Herefordshire.

Under the scheme, local authorities which dealt with the flooding can apply to have 100% of the eligible costs they incurred, above a threshold, reimbursed by the government. This could be for items including rest centres, temporary accommodation and staff overtime. A number of support measures are available to support the recovery of communities affected by recent flooding.
