As we are all aware, the country is facing a certain amount of uncertainty surrounding power supply going forward into the winter months, the Government has very recently commissioned a proposed national response with the possibility that power cuts, at worst, could extend to 7 days. Our proposal is that we are proactive in our approach as a local community and try wherever to protect and support our Village, and in particular the elderly and vulnerable residents. The provision of an emergency power supply will allow the Reading Room to be a full emergency centre if required so we can supply hot beverages, hot food, light and a warm and welcoming environment.
Regarding the storage of the equipment, this has been taken into account, and I can confirm that the equipment/fuel would be stored off premises.
Please make any comments you may have about this proposal before the 14th Dec 22.
Please also be advised that once the period of pubic consultation has concluded, then our findings and proposal will be passed to the parish council for final decision.
