Form and Handbook to follow


The government has announced it will extend its Farming Recovery Fund to support farmers badly affected by the recent flooding across Yorkshire and the Midlands.

Through this scheme, farmers and land managers who have suffered uninsurable damage will be able to apply for grants of between 500 and 25,000 to cover repair costs whether thats clearing debris or recovering damaged land.

Full guidance about the fund and how to apply will be published shortly. In the meantime, affected farmers can read existing guidance for those affected in North Yorkshire and Wainfleet, for information.
