Subject: Mount Anville Depot and DLR Business Continuity Planning for Covid-19

Dear Councillors

In these exceptional times, in responding to the Covid-19 crisis, we in DLR are having to make decisions to manage and deploy our staff so as to protect their health and safety and build resilience in our teams so that we can continue to deliver services now and in the event of the crisis escalating.

In these extraordinary circumstances, we have decided to use the old depot at Mount Anville to deploy a relatively small crew of Road Maintenance staff, along with fleet and materials that they will need to do their work. We will also be installing temporary welfare facilities in the form of a portacabin with toilet facilities for the staff.

I know that councillors and local residents may have concerns about activity on the site but I can assure you that the activity is related only to business continuity planning for DLR as part of our response to the Covid-19 crisis.

Please contact me should you have any queries.
