Dear Community Resilience Team
WINTER PERIOD ADVERSE WEATHER COVER AND CONTACT ARRANGEMENTS
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.

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. https://www.dumgal.gov.uk/consultations
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.
