Bellwin Scheme (Babergh District Council)

Volume 461: debated on Tuesday 12 June 2007

I am satisfied that financial assistance under the Bellwin scheme is justified to cover costs incurred by the council following exceptionally severe storms in the area on 18 January 2007.

A scheme will therefore be established under section 155 of the Local Government and Housing Act 1989. Grant will be paid to the authority to cover 85 per cent. of its eligible costs incurred above a threshold.
