If you have been involved in an incident and you wish to make a claim, please click on the Insurance Claims Against The Council link at the right hand side of this web page.

The Council maintains a number of insurance policies to protect and safeguard its assets from damage or loss. These policies are procured and maintained by the Insurance & Risk Management officer of the Corporate Resources Directorate. They protect against risks to council property such as buildings, vehicles & plant, office equipment and the Council’s Art Collection.

The Council also procures insurance against loss due to liability claims by third parties for damage or injury caused by the negligence of the Council, its employees or agents acting on its behalf. This type of insurance covers incidents such as damage to third party property by Council employees, injury to members of the public caused by tripping incidents on Council owned property or injury on Council owned playgrounds. It should be noted however that Fylde Borough Council is not the Highway Authority for the borough. Most public footpaths and roads in Fylde are owned and maintained by Lancashire County Council.

Risk Management

Risk management is a strategic tool and an essential part of effective and efficient management and planning.

Fylde Borough Council delivers a diverse range of services that provide a significant potential for personal injury and loss or damage. Risk management allows us to reduce that potential and in respect of strategic risk it will allow us to effectively manage the barriers to achieving the Council’s objectives.

The Council will seek to embed risk management into its culture, processes and structure to ensure that opportunities are maximised. The council will seek to encourage managers to identify, understand and manage risks.
