Flood protection - Property Level Resilience (PLR) Grant Scheme

Devon County Council is committed to increasing community resilience in Devon and is supported by Defra to deliver property level resilience measures. Working closely with a number of partners, DCC aims to help individual property owners be better equipped with the tools and basic defence measures they need to be able to deal with flooding. As such, a new PLR Grant Scheme has been established to enable home owners to apply for up to £5,000 to carry out a survey of the property, identifying the required resilience measures, and to purchase the recommended measures. Any additional budget requirements will be at the expense of the property owner.

There is limited funding, with an allocation to be made available each year by Defra, Local Levy and DCC. Applications will therefore be prioritised based on the criteria set out in DCCs PLR Policy to ensure those properties with the greatest need will receive the funding. There can be no guarantee of funding for all applications.

For full details see the Local Flood Risk Management Strategy on the Devon County Council website, or contact Sheelah Seeley on the Parish Council.
