North Wales Councils Regional Planning Service (NWC-REPS) is the emergency planning provider to all North Wales Local Authorities. These are:
- Flintshire County Council
- Denbighshire County Council
- Wrexham County Borough Council
- Conwy County Borough Council
- Isle of Anglesey County Council
- Gwynedd Council
The service is hosted by Flintshire County Council and is funded on a collaborative basis.
Our role, is to ensure that the Councils are fully compliant with the Civil Contingencies Act 2004, Pipeline Safety Regulations 1996, Control of Major Accident Hazard Regulations 2015 and the Radiation (Emergency Preparedness and Public Information) Regulations 2019.
This involves identifying threats and hazards, producing Emergency Response Plans, delivery of training to Local Authority staff and testing arrangements once in place.
We work collaboratively with partner agencies through North Wales Local Resilience Forum to represent all Local Authorities in North Wales.
By undertaking these activities, we are also contributing to the resilience and safety of communities in North Wales.
