[12 FEB 99] STRATFORD ON AVON DISTRICT COUNCIL PRESS RELEASE
Flood Costs Payment

Almost a year after the worst floods in living memory, Stratford District Council has received compensation from the government for costs incurred in dealing with the emergency. The council has received a payment of 36,428 from the Department of the Environment, Transport and Regions (DETR) under the 'Bellwin scheme'.

"I am pleased that some of the Council's costs in dealing with the terrible floods have now been reimbursed by the DETR, but disappointed it has taken so long" said Cllr Susan Juned, the District Council Leader.

"Although the sum is significantly less than we had originally applied for, it will nevertheless help offset some of 65,000 which we spent.

"Many people in the Stratford District were badly affected by the floods last Easter, and this council did everything it could to offer help wherever possible.

"During such an emergency, the last thing we ever think about is how much it is going to cost, but at the end of the day it all has to be paid for."

Under the Bellwin scheme the council is eligible for grant of 85%, after deducting a threshold of 21,000. The actual claim of 65,456 results in a grant of 36,428.
