Aberdeenshire Council Housing Options Team are aware that some residents of Ballater and the surrounding area who are currently in temporary accommodation following the December Flood may soon have to vacate the rented or temporary accommodation.

If you are in this situation and are experiencing or threatened with homelessness please contact the Housing Team during office hours (8.45am – 5pm Monday to Friday) on 01569 768562.

The Housing Options Team will be able to provide you with housing advice and assistance.

Aboyne, Upper Deeside & Donside councillor Geva Blackett said she is happy to see things moving in a positive direction.

She said: “I am very pleased to see the council taking a proactive stance on this matter because at the last Social Work and Housing committee I raised a concern that a number of households will find themselves in a difficult situation with their temporary accommodation now being needed for holiday lets.

“I would urge anyone who is in need of help with accommodation to contact the council as soon as possible and of course I am always here to help too”
