Grants and Funding to Help Flood Protect Your Home
Government grants to help support the cost of fitting flood defence systems do become available from time to time, especially in areas where there is a regularly recurring flooding problem. Often these are initially allocated to Local Authorities who then distribute to the individual householder.
Please see the area below for details of grants that we understand are available. If your area is not covered we recommend that you get in touch with your local councillor or MP and ask them to chase grants on your behalf.
- Uttlesford District Council – grants awarded for houses affected by flooding in the village of Ashdon.
As of 11th March 2010 Huw Irranca-Davies announced the latest successful bidders to the second round of the property level grant scheme. The list of successful authorities is available by clicking here. The size of the fund was slightly increased from £2.5 million to £2.6 million to enable a wider range of areas to benefit from the scheme.

Alternatively please contact us directly by completing our on-line contact form specifying that you want us to enquire about available grants in your area. We will be happy to make these enquiries on your behalf and advise you of what is available.
Obtaining grants can be a long and painful process. We fully understand that many of you will not have the time (or the energy) to go down that route so we have talked to many of the lenders. Following our discussions the Building Societies Association has agreed that their members should be happy to add the cost of our system to your current, or future, mortgage as long as this still meets their standard lending criteria.
As we have mentioned before, the simple fact that you have fitted the Watertight International system may mean that you can now get insurance on your property and might be the single most important reason you get a mortgage at all!
Naturally, we will also accept payment by the usual methods of debit and credit cards.
