Community and Living
Support for our local communities
South Holland District Council help communities in developing and sustaining their own projects by providing grant aid, support and advice and by creating links with wider partnerships.
South Holland District Council as a local authority has certain duties placed upon it by the Civil Contingencies Act 2004 - to prepare for, respond to and recover from major civil emergencies - and to promote resilience in the business sector by offering business continuity advice.
Under the Public Health (Control of Diseases) Act 1984 , where a person dies within the district and nobody is making the funeral arrangements, the local authority will in certain circumstances arrange the funeral.
