Is your house in a flood area? Applications for the voluntary house raising scheme now open

Applications for the voluntary house raising scheme now open The Voluntary House Raising Scheme has a round of funding every two years.  The next round is 2020-2022 and Council is preparing an application to the Office of Environment and Heritage (OEH).  The scheme allows home owners to access grant funding, provided by OEH, through the Floodplain Management Program, to assist with raising the floor level of their dwelling to or above the Flood Planning Level.  This is a floor level height established by the State Government that applies to dwellings.  The level is set at the level of a flood with a 1% chance of occurring in any given year, plus a 500mm freeboard.  The grant funding is usually a 2:1 ratio; OEH pays two thirds and the owner pays 1 third. If funding is approved by Office of Environment and Heritage (expected to be known by 1 December 2020) you will be required to provide the following documents prior to a formal offer being provided (approximately by March 2021): Three quotes need to be obtained for the work as per Council’s Procurement Policy. Please note that the number of dwellings able to be raised under the scheme in this round is dependent on the total number of applications made across the state, and each application requires OEH approval to go ahead.
