Housing Team to assess flood damaged properties in Brechin

Published on Monday 23 October 2023

Our housing team has been contacting tenants whose homes have been affected by flooding in Brechin.

This is in advance of gaining access to properties to begin the process of assessing the damage caused.

Despite repeated efforts to contact tenants over the weekend and again today, it has not been possible to reach them all so far. This could be due to landlines within evacuated properties being the only available number, or tenants’ contact details not being up to date.

We want to hear from you if you haven’t already had contact from us. You can get in touch via the ACCESSLine on 03452 777 778.

We have gained entry to a number of Council-owned properties today as part of works to restore energy supplies. These properties have been left secured on completion of work.

In normal circumstances, our team will provide 24-hour’s notice before gaining access. But where we cannot make contact with tenants, this will not be the case. The immediate priority now is to assess the damage caused by Storm Babet.

A team will be onsite tomorrow to access properties. If you are a housing tenant in the flood-affected area in Brechin and want to be at your address when we gain access, please call our ACCESSLine on 03452 777 778.
