Planning for emergencies

MOVES are underway by Ponteland Town Council to create a business continuity plan.

Coun Sue Johnson submitted a report suggesting that the authority should have a clear procedure in place for how it would continue to operate in the event of an unexpected crisis situation such as loss of power or a fire.

A working party meeting will be held to progress the idea and its members will also look into the process of enabling the new councillors to find out more about the various tasks and reports undertaken by the experienced councillors.
