Deadline for flood help is getting near

A DEADLINE for those affected by flooding in the Bognor Regis area to apply for help is looming.

The original Defra flood support scheme covered the period December 1, 2013, to March 31, 2014, only. However, it was extended to cover from April 1 to December 1, 2013, as well. This means anyone with a residential or business property who was affected by internal flooding between April 1 to December 1, 2013, or has a small or medium-sized business in flood-affected areas that had been impacted by the floods and suffered a significant loss of trade could be eligible for help.

Anyone who is unsure whether they qualify can call Phil Graham on 01903 737920 or email

Potential applicants must contact Arun District Council by January 15.
