Community Resilence contact form


Derbyshire County Council wish to work closely with town and parish councils on effective community response planning. In many emergencies the community want to help in the response to assist their friends and neighbours. This can take many forms eg organising volunteers, checking vulnerable people, obtaining key supplies for people or simply as a communication link with statutory agencies. Some communities want to prepare a full Response Plan and others simply want to provide contact points. Any involvement of communities is helpful in an emergency.

The full Plan can be provided by DCC if necessary.

LAIS 1390 - Governance and Accountability Guide

LAIS 1390 - Governance and Accountability Guide

In the midst of audit season, councils will be interested to know that new guidance, Governance and Accountability for Smaller Authorities in England, A Practitioners' Guide to Proper Practices to be applied in the preparation of statutory annual accounts and governance statements March 2016, has been published. Councils will be aware that this is essential reference material for councillors, clerks, Responsible Finance Officers and any council staff who have a financial management role.

Councils should not be too concerned that the appearance of the Guide is late for application for the accounting practice and Annual Returns currently underway as it is optional whether to apply it for 2015-2016. Councils can still refer to the predecessor Governance and Accountability (England) - Practitioners Guide 2014 for the 2015-2016 accounts. It has apparently been published now as some councils wanted to choose to apply it to 2015-16.
