Residents left homeless by floods in Newburn will receive goodwill payments from the company that built the estate.
Dunelm Homes has announced it will pay compensation to families who were forced to evacuate their flood-damaged homes in Mill Vale.
One block of flats on the estate, Spencer Court, built in 2006, will be demolished after surveyors said it was "beyond saving".
Anyone wishing to make a claim should visit the Dunelm Homes Site Office to collect and complete the necessary form or call 07771 930287.
A spokesman for Dunelm Homes said: “We have full planning and technical approval and National House Building Council warranty for the whole of this site.
"A commuted sum of £105,000, agreed in 2003, was paid to the City Council in December 2011.
"The roads and culvert are currently in the maintenance period of the agreement and were due to be adopted subject to final inspections by the council in summer 2012.
"It should be noted that since the events of May and June the process of adoption was suspended until the current emergency was fully resolved.
"Responsibility for both the roads and culvert on their development sites at Spencer Court and Millvale remain with Dunelm Homes."
