Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: No
Reason for Decision
The predecessor councils each had their own policies and arrangements for the provision of sandbags to residents to help protect their properties in the event of flooding. With the creation of Dorset Council, a single policy is needed to provide a consistent service across the Council's area to aid in its preparations for winter and potential severe weather.
Alternative Options considered and rejected
Cessation of the provision of sandbags to protect residential properties in the event of flooding.
That the Dorset Council Community Sandbag Stores Policy be adopted. A copy of the Policy can be obtained on request from Democratic Services.
