Effect of floods and road closure on Aller Businesses - Survey


flooding 2014

Now that Seven Bends and the A372 is open once more, Aller can again say it is truly 'Open for Business'. Hopefully, things will return quickly to normal, and 2015 will be a better year for everyone.

We know many businesses in the village were affected, and we want to ensure that the disruption is fully reported. A recent meeting at the Pound, organised by our Business Village Agent, was only supported by a handful of businesses, so we are running a survey to try to collect more information to pass on to the powers that be. The survey form HERE should only take a few minutes to complete, so please help us document recent history and plan for the future (as Seven Bends will be closed again sometime next year to complete the work).
If you suffered a financial loss there may be grants available to mitigate the effects.
