One Stop Flood Grant Advice Office Opens in Carlisle and Kendal

Free flood grant advice comes to the heart of Carlisle and Kendal with the opening of BERG’s flood grant office in the Carlisle City Council Building, Civic Centre, Carlisle, Cumbria, CA3 8QG and BERG’s flood grant shop at 3 Blackhall Road, Kendal, LA9 4BT.

The ‘one stop shop’ and office supports residents and businesses affected by the December 2015 floods helping them gain access to Government grants to make properties more resilient to future flooding.

From assistance with applications and expert flood mitigation advice, to arranging a flood survey and the final installation of suggested measures; friendly BERG flood application advisors are on hand to help residents and businesses through the entire process. The team ensure everything is hassle free and aim to bring peace of mind to local communities.

The Carlisle office will be open from 9am to 4pm Monday to Friday and the team can be contacted on 01228 817002 or via email at floodgrants@carlisle.gov.uk.

The Kendal shop will be open from 9am to 6pm Monday to Friday and replaces the BERG Unit, which has been located at ASDA in Kendal since March. The team can be contacted on 01539 769057.
