Borth Community Council have updated and expanded the Community Flood Plan to include storms, power cuts, prolonged snow and fire. It is now a Community Emergency Plan.
We have worked with the local Coastguard, RNLI, Ceredigion County Council and Natural Resources Wales to produce the plan and have also included our experience gained from the 2013 & 2014 winter storms, high tides and flooding events.
The Community Emergency Plan won’t fossilise, as a Council we will keep it under review and up to date so that it meets the needs of residents, businesses, visitors and tourists in Borth and Ynyslas.
Volunteer Community Wardens are an important part of any response, they help to communicate messages to residents in their ‘patch’, helping to keep people safe. Let us know if you don’t know who your Community Warden is, we can put you in touch.
We have approximately 46 Flood Wardens in Borth and 7+ in Ynyslas. We always welcome more and are looking for Community Wardens in Upper Borth. If you would like to become a Community Warden, please contact Jill Hulse 871256 or Mike Wilcox 871245.
Borth Community Council have approved the Community Flood Plan (3rd February 2014) and the Community Emergency Plan (May 2017).
The Plan is available for your information below.
