Assessment based on deriving risks by category for each asset/activity – as detailed in the Risk Register (copy held by Clerk).

Risks are derived by using the expression: Risk = Likelihood x Consequence and summing over the range of possibilities for each category of risk for each asset/activity.

Both ‘likelihood’ and ‘consequence’ are rated on a simple five point scale from 0 (lowest likelihood / consequence) to 4 (lowest likelihood / consequence).

The same likelihood scale is used for each category of risk while that for the consequences varies.

Loddon Parish Council is a pro-active, non party political organisation which works within the overall structure of local government to get the best deal for local people.  The council is made up of eleven councillors who are elected every four years.  It has two part time employees – the Clerk Anne Panella and the Finance and Projects Officer Howard Keeling.  The Parish Council’s work can be divided into two areas; statutory duties and community functions.  The statutory work involves liaising with organisations like the Broads Authority, Norfolk County Council and South Norfolk District Council, consulting on such things as planning applications and development.

The community functions include addressing local issues and undertaking projects to improve the community, such as providing the skate park, Christmas lights, benches, dog bins and flower displays. The Parish Council also maintains the war memorial and contributes to the upkeep of other community areas such as the churchyard, playing fields and Pyes Mill. The Parish Council meets on the second Thursday of each month (excluding August).  Members of the public are always welcome to attend the meetings and are given the opportunity to address the Council to express opinions or ask questions.  Anyone meeting certain criteria (such as living within three miles of the parish) can stand as a Parish Councillor.   If you are interested in finding out more, please contact the Clerk.
