Aberdeen City Council is running a 50 per cent funded grant scheme to help residents protect their property from flooding. The grant will only apply for those private homes that meet the at least one of the following criteria:
- The property has been internally flooded previously and actual damage has been sustained.
- The property is located on an area in risk of flooding shown on the SEPA flooding maps.
- The property is located on an area in risk of flooding shown on the Integrated Catchment Study Model.
Initially, you can apply for up to £100 to cover the cost of a survey to determine if property level protection will be suitable for the property as well as the type of protection that could be installed.
Households that meet the criteria will receive a grant of up to 50 per cent of the installation cost of Property Level Protection, up to a maximum of £2500. The grant will be paid out retrospectively once you provide proof of what you have spent. The property protection, once it has been installed, must meet at least two of the following criteria:
- The products used are European kite marked.
- The products used are from the suggested list of manufacturers.
- Flood survey has been undertaken to determine appropriate property level protections.
In order to support the application for payment, you should add:
- Photographs of property and the improvements made.
- Proof of expenditure.
- Technical data of the materials used.
- Map with the location of the property.
- Enclose a copy of the letter approving your grant application.
