The events are free to attend, no appointments are needed, just drop in.

Angus Council’s Convener of Communities, Cllr Mark McDonald is encouraging everyone to attend:

“With many people and businesses across the area having personal experience of flooding, we want to make sure everyone has the support and information they need to be able to plan, prepare and recover from the potential impact of any future flooding.

“I’d encourage all local residents, whether they rent privately or with the council, are home or business owners to come along to these events to get first hand expert advice and see practical property flood resilience measures in action.”

Scott Petrie, Chief Executive Officer at Angus Rural Partnership said:

“Angus Rural Partnership was established in October 2022, and supports local communities to become more sustainable and resilient. Given the number of storms and associated flooding which residents and businesses have experienced recently, we were keen to help bring the Floodmobile to Angus.

“The emergency climate increases the likelihood of flooding, and the Floodmobile Roadshow provides residents with practical advice, and demonstrates measures available, to help protect homes in the future.”

This events are supported by Angus Rural Partnership with funding from the Scottish Government’s Rural Community-Led Local Development Fund 2023/24, part of the Scottish Rural Development Programme.
