To provide an update to the Panel on the Terms of Reference with the Lincolnshire Resilience Forum (report of the Portfolio Holder Place and the Executive Director Place enclosed).
Consideration was given to the report of the Portfolio Holder for Place and the Executive Director Place which provided the Panel with an update to the Terms of Reference with the Lincolnshire Resilience Forum.
The Building Consultancy Manager introduced the report, stating that it presented the terms of reference which the Panel had requested.
The Chairman asked how many incidents had been responded to in the previous year. The Place Manager stated that the previous years’ weather issues in March had provided a good example of how the emergency planning system worked. Led by the Lincolnshire Resilience Forum, South Holland and other partners constantly engaged to provide an appropriate response.
The Chairman asked what issues were generally addressed by the Emergency Planning team. Officers responded that in the previous year there had been no serious incidents in South Holland. District Officers continue to proactively and reactively work on ‘business as usual’ incidents such as dangerous structures, fly tips on roads and so forth.
Members asked if any money was being spent on the planning for Brexit. The Building Consultancy Manager responded that national Government had made Brexit planning mandatory, but that was largely characterised by attendance at emergency planning meetings. The Executive Manager - Governance responded that members should contact relevant officers directly for further details.
That the panel note the information provided within the report.
