To ask the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, how many and what proportion of houses in flood-affected post codes after storm Desmond have had flood protection measures installed; and what flood protection measures have been installed in each house that was affected.
As a result of Storm Desmond and Eva, 17,628 properties were eligible to receive the flood resilience grant in the local authority areas impacted by the storms.
66% (11,756) of those eligible for the grant in the impacted local authority areas submitted applications and 95% (11,193) were approved.
The information about the postcodes of properties that received the grants and the types of measures installed is held by the local authorities who implemented the scheme.
The range of flood resilience measures installed in each property will depend on the choices made by the householder, the type of flood risk, and the construction of the property.
