Holding answer received on 27 February 2020

As result of the November 2019 flooding, the Government announced the activation of the flood recovery framework to support those communities most significantly impacted in England. My Department is still assessing the full extent of the flooding and will be releasing funding to eligible local authorities shortly.

Claims under the Bellwin Scheme in respect of the November flooding incidents in England are also being assessed for payment – the deadline for local authority claims was 17 February 2020.
