Resilience info for Festive Period. Contacts etc.


Dear Community Resilience Team




Thank you for your continued support during the recent weather events that have impacted the region over the past couple of months.

Given the likelihood that we could face range of challenging winter weather conditions in the coming weeks we felt it that it was appropriate to make you aware of the arrangements that will be in place over the festive period, from 17th December 2021 till 5th January 2022.

As in previous years we will have Duty Officers covering key Council functions and will continue to deliver many of the same services throughout the festive period as we do during the rest of the year including responding to emergencies and unexpected incidents.


Below for reference are the appropriate emergency contact number for Council and partners.


1.	Dumfries & Galloway Council Contact Centre - Dial 030 33 33 3000 (this number is monitored 24hrs a day 365 days a year and operators will be able to put you in touch with the appropriate Duty Officer, when calling outside of normal business hours select the option (1) for Care Call) 

2.	In an emergency always dial 999 when there is a risk to life or property.

3.	Dial the 101 the non-emergency number to make local Police aware of any policing issues in your area.

4.	Dial 111 for NHS 24. 

5.	Dial 105 to report or get information about power cuts in your local area.

6.	Dial 0800 023 2023 for Openreach to report issues related to telephone services in your area

Conservation Area

 Conservation Information

Consultation has been extended to 11th January. If you have any thoughts on this subject please let us know by 1st January - KCC has to formulate a response to this and give the community's thoughts - we need to know what the residents think. So far we've had one response. You can also respond to the Council as an individual but it would be useful if you copied us into your response. See your copy of Grapevine for information on what the change would mean. 




Dear Irene


The attached document is what will be available through the website from Friday.  I believe it covers the points you have made in your email.  A similar document will be provided for each conservation area.  If you have additional questions do come back to me.


However, just to add that in terms of new dwellings the Housing policies [pages 36-38] of the Local Development Plan LDP2  apply to all settlements within the region and the design of new buildings which meet those policies, or extensions to existing dwellings, should be guided by Housing Development in Villages Supplementary Guidance and Alterations and Extensions to Dwellings Supplementary Guidance to those policies.

 I trust you find the above and attached helpful.
