Andrew Maltby has been working with South Somerset District Council in an attempt to record the effect of flooding on local businesses, not just farming. This includes indirect effects that have increased operating costs, not just flooding itself. Results from other districts will be pooled to provide an assessment of the cost to the rural economy of the last couple of months.
If you have been affected, please do complete the questionnaire (download it here) and return the form by Email to email@example.com or post to SSDC Area North, Unit 10, Bridge Barns, Long Sutton TA10 9PZ. If you are not directly affected, but know a business that has been, please pass this information on to them.
