Flood relief for premises

PREMISES around Bognor Regis which flooded last winter could get support from the government.

Arun District Council has agreed to run a scheme to help flood victims.

Its website, www.arun.gov.uk, contains an eform under flood support scheme for those affected by flooding from last December 1 to March 31 to register their interest.

Four of the schemes available are: business rates flooding relief, business support scheme, a repair and renewal grant for businesses and residents and council 
tax discounts.

Funding is coming from the government.

Cllr Paul Dendle, in charge of the council’s environmental services, said he hoped everyone affected would register by May 2.
