Consultations - Land instability in the Gorge

Who can get involved? Residents of the Ironbridge Gorge
Start date 29 May 2013
Closing date 11 June 2013
Service delivery area Law, Democracy and Public Protection
Reason for consultation We will be providing drop in sessions for the residents of the area to raise their awareness around the issue of land instability in the Gorge and the fact that we have multi agency plans in place to respond if needed. Also to clarify what residents can do to prepare for such an event and how they can inform the Council and other partners if they become aware of any land instability issues.
Overview Following the recent distribution of the revised Land Instability Pack to all residents in the Gorge, we are running 3 drop in sessions at various times of the day, at various locations. These will provide opportunities for residents to ask questions of relevant agencies and to look at video footage of previous landslides. We will show examples of evacuation essentials and detail the muster points agreed with partners, and gather initial information from the public which will enable us to warn and inform them appropriately of potential landslides.
How to get involved? Attend the drop in sessions:

29 May 2pm - 8pm – Glass Class Room, Enginuity, Ironbridge
4 June 9-3pm – Blists Hill Volunteer Centre, Ironbridge
