More Help For Dorset Flood Victims


8:37am 24th December 2014

If you've suffered flood damage to your home, then help could be on its way.

Dorset County Council is installing flood barriers, doors and pumps to homes that meet the Environment Agency's criteria,

100 properties will be fitted with the devices to improve flood resilience and to help householder's get their lives back to normal more quickly after flood damage.

This scheme is funded by Flood Defence Grant in Aid which is administered by the Environment Agency.

Councillor Peter Finney, Cabinet member of environment and economy said: "We are delighted to be co-ordinating this initiative and are confident that when installed we will significantly improve the resilience for households in the most at risk areas."

More help is at hand for those who have been affected by flooding from the National Flood Forum. The national charity helps people prevent or reduce the impact of flooding.

The National Flood Forum can be contacted on 01299 403055 or visit www.nationalfloodforum.org.uk
