Update December 2014

The severe winter weather that occurred during the winter of 2013 to 2014 left a trail of destruction and flooded properties across many parts of the country. In recognition of the hardship caused the government activated a range of schemes to assist affected communities to recover.

When launching the Winter 2013 to 2014 severe weather recovery report on 27 November 2014, the government announced it would be extending a range of flood recovery schemes covering flooding that occurred earlier in 2013 to 2014 in recognition of the hardship caused in other parts of England.

This guide outlines what support is available to eligible local authorities, households and businesses affected by severe weather between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2014 and how they can apply. It updates the guidance issued in February 2014.
