In addition to the flooding which has been experienced in and around Wrington at times in recent years there is always the potential for incidents related to household, community, and business premises, with road traffic accidents and, of course, in association with the airport. Bristol Airport is located within the parish, has a significant presence and potential impacts in terms of aircraft, traffic and people movements and is the largest employer. Details of the airport’s emergency planning procedures are available here, together with a link to North Somerset Council’s (NSC) plans for the management of incidents at the airport.
We are working closely with NSC and the Environment Agency on the implementation of a flood relief scheme in Wrington which will include a surface water storage area located on land to the east of the village, together with culvert improvements within Wrington. See the Flood Risk page for further details.
We are also liaising with NSC on emergency planning, especially on community resilience, which is a project aimed at encouraging communities to use local resources and knowledge to help themselves in ways that complement and support the emergency services. See the North Somerset community resilience website.
For further information on NSC emergency management policy see here.
Details on how to prepare for a power cut can be found here. Contact details for other organisations and services are available through the Useful Links page and the Wrington Village website, especially the emergency/urgent telephone numbers list.
