EMERGENCY CONTACT INFORMATION

In coming weeks we will be posting to this location a lot of information about emergencies, how to respond to them and where to go for information.

As District and County Councils continue to reduce their support and budgets for rural areas, it seems increasingly likely that we will have to be able to look after ourselves with a minimum of "outside support" for anything other than the most dire circumstances.  The recent flooding event (21st November, 2016), caused by hours of intense rainfall which was not forecast, is a typical example.  In anticipation of the next flood event we have formed a group of Flood Wardens who will be responsible for coordinating the village response and are developing a local response network for communication from and to residents.  If you think any part of the village is at risk of flooding and want to contact someone, you can call one of the following numbers and someone will take your details.  If you get no answer to one of the numbers then do try another.

 

Flood Warden Telephone Number

Please remember: The flood wardens are local volunteers who are giving up their time to help residents cope with emergency situations.  Their first priority is minimising disruption and organising relief efforts.  You are responsible for protecting your own property and help and advice on how to do this can be obtained either direct from County Council or via a flood warden.  Any steps taken in advance of a flood to protect your property are always very worthwhile. 

NEWBURGH SITE DEVELOPMENT

As residents will have seen, demolition of the old industrial buildings is well advanced and the programme is on schedule for completion in time for initial works on house building to begin in September.

 

55 new houses will be built on the land, including 12 affordable homes which will be available for rent by local residents via the DDDC "Home Options" housing scheme.  The building programme is expected to take 2 years for completion.
