Chichester District Council has a number of plans to respond and manage an emergency.
As a category 1 responder we have a statutory responsibility to have in place plans to make sure we can provide support to the emergency services as well as provide facilities such as a rest centre or other resources.
Emergency Plan - Part 2 Methodology and Reference
This part of the plan contains additional information that will assist in formulating a common approach to responding to an emergency. It also serves as an aid memoire for common processes employed by all category 1 and 2 responders.
Rest Centre Plan - Chichester District Council Local Plan
There is an agreed approach throughout Sussex to deliver the need for a rest centre otherwise known as an "Emergency Assistance Centre". This allows for local authority staff to be familiar with rest centre processes should they be sent to another local authority area. This local plan is an enhancement of the agreed plan which aims to clarify subtle local differences when setting up a centre. The plan is primarily role based.
This plan complements rest centre operations, or in times where council staff are deployed for long amounts of time, responding to an emergency.
Chichester District Marine Communications Plan
When an incident affects, or is likely to effect, the coastal community within the Chichester district or neighbouring areas, this plan provides a framework for communicating with all interested partners to provide latest information and strategy.
Selsey Flood Plan (Sussex Resilience Forum Plan Part 2)
The flood plan for Selsey is a site specific plan as there is a significant threat to coastal flooding in this locality. The plan was written by the District Council Emergency Planning Officer on behalf of the Sussex Resilience Forum. The first part of the plan looks at generic response management for all types of floods within the Sussex area. Chichester District Council Emergency Planning is responsible for maintaining and reviewing the plan on a bi-yearly basis.
