Dear Ms Scott

 

Thank you for your enquiry, which we received on the 12/07/19.

 

Your request was as follows:

“Please could you publish a copy of your emergency plan detailing the
response taken in the event of a civil emergency or major incident?”

Your request has been considered in accordance with the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 and the Environmental Information Regulations 2004
and the Council’s response to the question raised is set out below:

 

Please see the attached documentation for the information requested.

 

NB: Some of the information has been redacted. It is the reasonable
opinion of the Council’s qualified person, Janie Berry (the Monitoring
Officer), that the redacted information is exempt from disclosure under s.
36(2)(c) of the Freedom of Information Act as disclosure would prejudice
the effective conduct of public affairs. This is because disclosure of the
requested information would adversely affect the Council’s ability to
provide an efficient and effective emergency planning function and
safeguard the people of Derbyshire.

 

I trust this now satisfies your request.

 

However should you require a review of the response you have received to
your FOI/EIR request, please follow the procedure as set out below:-
