Survey of flood-hit homes
Gloucestershire Councils join forces to survey flood-hit homes
A door-to-door survey of flood-hit homes in Gloucestershire is being carried out by a taskforce of staff from the county's six district councils.
The teams began visiting properties this week to assess the scale of damage and to find out whether people need further assistance. All affected homes - whether owned or rented – will be visited.
Cotswold District Council Private Sector Housing Manager Claire Ride said: "We understand this is a very difficult time for people affected by the recent flooding and we want to make sure we assist householders in accessing all the help that is available to them."
The teams will be surveying areas known to have flooded. However if you were affected and have not been visited by a council representative by Wednesday 15th August, please contact your local council.
All council staff carry photographic identity cards. Please do not let any one into your home before first checking who they are. If you have been shown the officer's ID card but are still concerned, please contact your council the appropriate number from the following list, and state that is in connection with the Flooded Homes Survey.
