Multi million pound council flood compensation begins

Published: Fri, 14 Dec 2007 17:39:28

Floods Recovery Minister John Healey today (13 December 2007) announced that Gloucestershire County Council will receive an interim payment of £1.1m from Government to help with its costs in clearing up after this summer's floods. They may receive a further payment once the council has submitted a final claim.

This payment is being made under the Bellwin scheme which covers costs incurred by a local authority on immediate action to safeguard life and property or prevent suffering as a result of a disaster or emergency.
