Annex B of the Bellwin guidance on the Communities and Local Government website:
gives examples of expenditure that would not normally qualify for funding under the Bellwin scheme. These include:
costs which are normally insurable, whether by the authority or any other party (e.g. under household insurance policies);
loss of income (e.g. from facilities closed as a result of the emergency), as this falls outside the scope of section 155 of the Local Government and Housing Act 1989;
the normal wages and salaries of the authority's regular employees, whether diverted from their normal work or otherwise, and the standing costs of the authority's plant and equipment;
longer term works of repair and restoration, such as tree planting and repair or refurbishment of damaged but not dangerous structures;
any element of betterment, e.g. repairs to buildings to a significantly higher standard than their condition on the day before the incident.
