Emergency and Evacuation

In the event of a fire, a continuous alarm will sound.  Leave the building using the nearest escape route; from the Council Chamber or Mezzanine viewing gallery this is via the staircase just outside the door.  Go to the assembly point at the far side of the staff car park opposite the staff  entrance

  • Do not use the lifts to leave the building.  If you are unable to use stairs by yourself, the emergency staircase landings have fire refuge areas, which give protection for a minimum of 1.5 hours.  Press the alarm button and wait for help from Council fire wardens or the Fire and Rescue Service.
  • Do not re-enter the building until the officer in charge or the Fire and Rescue Service confirms that it is safe to do so.


First Aid

If you feel unwell or need first aid, please alert a member of staff.


Access for People with Disabilities

We are committed to improving, for all members of the community, access to our agendas and minutes. We try to take all circumstances into account but, if you have any specific needs, please let us know, and we will do what we can to help you.  The Council Chamber is accessible to wheelchair users.  Infra-red hearing assistance systems are available in the Council Chamber and viewing gallery. To use these, you must sit in sight of the infra-red transmitter and wear a ‘neck loop’, which can be used with a hearing aid switched to the ‘T’ position.  If your hearing aid does not have the ‘T’ position facility then earphones are also available and can be used independently. You can get both neck loops and earphones from Reception.



Public toilets are available on each floor of the building next to the lifts. These include facilities for disabled people.
