Dear Tom Brant,
In respect of your above question, it has been established after careful consideration that the Council does not hold the above information. Consequently, we are unable to provide any information relating to the above, and are informing you as required by Section 1(1) (a) of the Act, that states:
"Any person making a request for information to a public authority is entitled to be informed in writing by the public authority whether it holds information of the description specified in the request".
However, while we accept that the absence of evidence is not evidence of absence, the City of Wolverhampton concentrates our efforts on planning for risks that are generally accepted as being more likely. With limited resources, we must select priorities and, as such, we use the National Risk Register and the local Community Risk Register to identify risks based on their likelihood and impact.
As you'll see from the above links, neither of the published registers recognise risks such as faeries, werewolves, The Inferi , Black Magic, Elves, the Citizens of Mars, Wizards Dark or otherwise, vampires or zombies; but that is not to say that our plans are not capable of being adapted to unexpected, black swan type, emergencies.
The City of Wolverhampton has a number of risk specific plans that are underpinned by a generic Major Incident Response Plan. This plan allows us to gather the right people, with the right training and tools, to manage the response to a major incident, irrespective of the hazard that caused it.
