Policy & Strategy Documents


Nearly all emergencies affecting the local community will be dealt with routinely by a joint response from the emergency services, local authorities, health agencies and utility companies. However, in extreme conditions such as snow and flooding, there is a possibility that the emergency services and other agencies may be overwhelmed and not be able to reach us immediately.

The Parish Council's Emergency Plan is currently under review. However, a communication system remains in place since the COVID-19 pandemic.

You can contact the Clerk or Parish Councillors at any time.
