Statement in relation to Government Compensation schemes to support households and businesses.
"We appreciate that businesses and residents will need additional support to help them to recover losses following the recent floods. As part of the multi-agency emergency planning effort, Nottinghamshire local authorities are coordinating activity to make sure that that everyone affected is aware of what is available and how to access the support they need, whether this is financial aid, emotional support or a range of other measures. As soon as the government has confirmed compensation arrangements for households, businesses and the farming community we will make sure everyone who needs access to this is aware of how to apply for any such schemes.
"In the meantime Nottinghamshire County Council remains committed to ensuring that its hardship fund offers some level of relief to those who need it. People whose homes were flooded or evacuated and small business owners similarly affected can access a one-off hardship grant to help them in the immediate aftermath of the floods. Please call 0300 500 80 80 for more information.”
