The Leeds city centre evacuation plan coordinates the actions of emergency responders involved in a major incident or evacuation affecting Leeds city centre.
The plan splits the city centre into nineteen named and numbered zones which will be used in the event of an incident to identify and manage zones requiring an evacuation or alternative actions.
The plan covers more than evacuation alone. Several elements of the plan are used to communicate advice regarding severe weather, demonstrations and disruption using tools such as Leeds Alert, Twitter and media contacts.
To assist city centre businesses and residents in the response to a major incident, Leeds City Council have produced the documents available below.
Leeds Evacuation zones outside the City Centre – zone map
This map shows the eight evacuation zones outside the City centre, but still within the Leeds Metropolitan Borough Boundary. As is the case for the nineteen city centre zones, these eight additional zones help ensure a controlled response can be implemented and aid in communicating areas affected by disruption or emergencies.
