Flooding in the Calder Valley

The Calder Valley has been hit by flash floods twice in July.

Flood-hit businesses will get help

Flood-hit businesses in the Calder Valley can apply for a share of a £250,000 fund.

The Recovery Investment for a Stronger Economy (RISE) fund is from Calderdale Council's budget.

It is being used to provide short-term and long-term help to get businesses back up and running.

Small to medium-sized businesses affected by the floods and which suffered loss of stock, loss of business, damage to business premises can apply, as can businesses wanting to install specialist barriers and similar equipment.

Businesses wanting to apply for Rise funding should contact Luke Doran on 01422 392156.

Help for flood victims

Flood victims in the Calder Valley are being invited to a special meeting in Hebden Bridge. They'll be told by council officials what help they can get - and what measures are being taken to prevent further flooding. From Hebden Bridge Chris Kiddey reports.
