During last year's floods and threat of flooding in York and surrounding areas, the Emergency Services worked tirelessly to assist local residents. In recognition of this, the Town Council is opposed to any reduction or proposed reduction in essential services and is now in the process of producing a new Emergency Plan for the Parish.

The Plan includes details of contact numbers and assembly centres and a form to identify vulnerable persons who may need assistance in the event of an emergency such as a flood.

The Town Council is still seeking Volunteers to assist as Flood Wardens.

An information booklet has been delivered to all houses in the Parish containing forms to register as a volunteer or to be added to the vulnerable persons register. Spare copies are still available from Barlby Library and Community Hub.


The project is still going ahead, projected completion date 2018.
