Flooding survey for Somerset Businesses

First published in Somerset

BUSINESSES in Somerset are being invited to complete a flooding survey by the Somerset Chamber of Commerce.

They are looking to get a more complete picture now the flooding is over.

A snapshot survey by the Commerce back in February revealed that an average of £17,352 per business had been lost in financial terms and productivity due to the flooding in the first six weeks of the year.

Somerset Chamber CEO Rupert Cox said, “When we conducted our initial research earlier this year, many of those most affected did not have power or broadband, or were busy trying to keep the water out and deal with the issues caused by flooding.

"As a result, and to get a more complete picture now the flooding is over, we’re re-running the survey to find out what the true impact has been on Somerset businesses.

"We will use this information to fuel our future lobbying activity, ensuring that the required investment in infrastructure is made to protect homes and businesses in Somerset.”
