Roseanna Calls for Activation of Bellwin Formula

The Scottish National Party’s Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP, Member of the Scottish Parliament for Perthshire South & Kinross-shire has written to John Swinney MSP in his role as Cabinet Secretary for Finance, calling for the Bellwin Formula to be enacted in order to ensure that any works identified as being required can be speedily embarked upon and completed

Ms Cunningham said:

“Comrie has now been flooded twice in just a few months. There are folk who had only just got back into their homes from the last time when they were forced out once more.

 “This week’s flooding was even worse than in August and I don’t want anything to stand in the way of whatever work needs to be done to protect my constituents from the threat of future flooding events."

NOTE: Here is the full text of the letter sent by Ms Cunningham:

 

Dear John

 

As you are aware, there was serious flooding in the village of Comrie on Monday, 19 November.  The event replicated the flooding of August, affecting the same streets and houses although on this occasion a greater area was flooded than before.  

 

The cause of this week's flood was exactly the same as took place in August.

 

You will understand that there is a considerable degree of anxiety in the village coupled with some frustration at the slow progress in coming up with a satisfactory solution to a known problem.

 

With this in mind, I wonder if it would be possible to activate the Bellwin formula in order to ensure that any works identified as being required can be speedily embarked upon and completed?

 

I look forward to hearing from you.
