£1.8m to Repair Damaged Flood Banks
Scottish Government funding worth £1.8 million will support farmers impacted by recent floods.
Those affected by severe flooding this autumn in parts of Scotland including Angus will be eligible to apply for grants of up to £30,000, to help repair man-made flood banks.
The support is being target to farmers in those local authority areas worst affected by recent flooding. These are Angus, Perth and Kinross, Fife, Aberdeenshire, the City of Aberdeen and Moray.
The scheme will open for applications next month and will be administered by the Scottish Government.
Rural Affairs Secretary Mairi Gougeon provided details of the new funding whilst addressing delegates at AgriScot at the Royal Highland Centre on Wednesday 22nd November. These will be made available on the Rural Payments and Services website.
