Following a survey completed by council workers across the county rough totals for the number of households affected by the floods are as follows:
- Cheltenham 1200
- Cotswold 1150
- Forest of Dean 100
- Gloucester 1150
- Stroud 250
- Tewkesbury 1500
The total number of houses in the county that were flooded (that we know of) currently stands at 5350, with leftover questionaires being completed this week. There is clearly a lot of work still to be done.
If your home was flooded and you were out when we called you should have been left a form to identify who you are and the extent of the damage. Can you please return this as soon as possible to:
- Erin Davies, Cheltenham Borough council, Municipal offices, Promenade, Cheltenham, GL50 9SA
If you have a completed flood fund application form then please send this to:
- Gloucestershire flood relief fund, Tewkesbury Borough Council, Council Offices, Gloucester Road, Tewkesbury, GL20 5TT
A big thanks to all the surveyors who travelled around the county visiting homes and listening to residents’ needs.
