Emergency Financial Assistance Scheme

25 April 2016

To help assist small businesses and non-domestic properties affected by flooding from 7 November 2015 to 31 January 2016, an emergency financial assistance scheme is now available.

Small businesses, places of worship, recreational and community buildings can apply for a payment of £1,000. Farm businesses are also eligible for a payment of £1,000 where their land has been significantly affected by sustained high levels of water on Lough Neagh or Upper Lough Erne. Both types of financial assistance are subject to meeting a selection of criteria. For criteria listing and applications forms visit www.antrimandnewtownabbey.gov.uk/flooding.

Completed applications can be posted to Antrim and Newtownabbey Borough Council, Mossley Mill, Carnmoney Road North, Newtownabbey, BT36 5QA or emailed to [email protected]. If you have any queries, please contact Helen Harper, Environmental Health Manager on 028 9034 0160.

Non-farmland applications close on 30 April 2016 and farmland application close on 16 May 2016.
