How can I claim for temporary accommodation expenses?

You can contact the Coal Authority’s Skewen community liaison team on 0800 2884268 or complete the form here https://www2.groundstability.com/skewen/ for information about reimbursement for accommodation expenses incurred due to the evacuation.

  • For residents of Sunnyland Crescent and other evacuated, affected properties this covers the period up to and including the night of 28 January 2021.
  • For residents of Goshen Park this covers the period up to and including the night of when access is reinstated to Goshen Park. 

This reimbursement will be for hotel costs if receipted or £30 per household per night if you have stayed with family or friends. This form cannot be used to claim for longer-term accommodation.

If you need longer-term accommodation because your home is affected by flood damage, we recommend that you speak to your insurance company to arrange this.
