Bournemouth, Dorset and Poole Local Resilience Forum Recovery Plan

Cars trapped in flood

The purpose of this plan is to provide a strategic overarching framework that provides a simple but effective guide for designated personnel and agencies tasked with implementing the recovery process.

Cause of Disaster

Disasters and emergencies can be caused by:

  • Disruption to essential services
  • Technological failure
  • The extremes of nature
  • Terrorist attack

Communities can be effected for long periods and suffer great hardship in the process of putting life back together. The emergency may occur overseas but impact on or residents or nationals living in Dorset.

It is in this context that the requirement for physical, psychological and economic restoration that recovery is conducted.

Recovery from disaster

This can be defined as the process of rebuilding, restoring and rehabilitating the community following and emergency or disaster and continuing until the disruption has been rectified.

The most affected Local Authority is best placed to lead and co-ordinate the Recovery Phase and will be responsible for ensuring that the community is progressed to 'a new normality' and identify any opportunities that go beyond recovery and could achieve longer term regeneration and development.
