I am pleased to announce that City of Edinburgh Council is eligible for a payment of £150,792 under the Bellwin Scheme. The scheme was activated on 29 August 2001 following representation from the council on costs directly associated with the immediate aftermath of the severe flooding in April and November 2000.

City of Edinburgh Council’s costs were primarily revenue costs for removing fallen trees and debris, land drainage works and the evacuation of a nursing care home.
