Derbyshire Community Drop in events for residents and businesses affected by flooding during Storm Babet
The Environment Agency in partnership with Derbyshire County Council are arranging a series of public drop in events for communities affected by flooding.
The events will be an opportunity for residents and businesses affected by flooding to discuss their concerns and seek advice.There will be an opportunity to find out about the grants and support available for property flood resilience (PFR) measures, learn about the Environment Agency’s flood warning system, and talk about your experiences with flooding.
There will also be the opportunity for you to ask questions and learn about work being undertaken by the Environment Agency and Derbyshire County Council to help reduce the impact of flooding in their area.
Due to the number of communities impacted by Storm Babet we are unable to run events in each individual community affected and have needed to group communities together and target those that have been impacted the most. Each event will be open to anyone from the surrounding area who would like to attend.
List of events planned for local towns and villages:
Friday 19th January, 2pm to 7pm | Baslow Village Hall, Nether End, Baslow, DE45 1SR
For affected communities in Hathersage, Grindleford, Curbar, Eyam, Stoney Middleton, Beeley, Rowsley & surrounding area
