Help for households in flood-risk areas
FINGAL County Council is prepared to provide letters detailing flood relief works it has carried out in areas prone to flooding to make it easier for households in those areas to get insurance.
In response to a question on the issue from Cllr Brian McDonagh (Lab), the council explained: 'In areas where flood relief works have been carried out by, or on behalf of the council, a letter can be provided describing the works carried out, the location of the works, the date when the works were completed and the standard of protection expected.
'The council has provided a number of such letters which appear to have satisfied the requirements of the insurance companies.
'Where works have been carried out by the OPW Engineering Services, they will, on request, provide a similar letter.'
