This scheme is now closed and relates to flooding which occurred during the winter 2013 to 2014.
The severe weather recovery scheme provides support to local authorities in England that incurred, or will incur recovery costs as a result of flooding caused by the east coast tidal surge on 5 and 6 December 2013 and/or severe weather up to 7 February 2014.
The scheme covers 2 elements: supporting communities and repairing local highway infrastructure. This funding is in addition to the Bellwin scheme, insurance and the existing central and local government obligations and programmes.
Separate recovery support arrangements for Somerset councils, which are currently in response and are expected to be for some time, will be agreed this financial year.
The deadline for applications was 19 February 2014.
