Council preparations for zombie attack

Leicester city council has admitted to one of the most shocking lapses any council could. It appears that they have no emergency plan to deal with a zombie outbreak. The following letter has prompted this shocking revelation:

Dear Leicester City Council,
Can you please let us know what provisions you have in place in the event of a zombie invasion? Having watched several films it is clear that preparation for such an event is poor and one that councils throughout the kingdom must prepare for.
Please provide any information you may have.
Yours faithfully,
Concerned Citizen

Lynn Wyeth of the council said she was unaware of any specific reference to a zombie attack in the council’s emergency plan, however some elements of it could be applied if the situation arose.

This is clearly unacceptable. However, closer to home what plans do our councils have to defeat the zombie menace?

Fermanagh council could presumably fortify Enniskillen island or maybe make a last stand on Devenish (along with looking for the lost ark of the covenant which as we all know is buried there).

Derry City Council might use the walls as a safe refuge; Carrickfergus could use the castle. However, many of the other councils could have major problems. I suppose Belfast could create areas of safety. Clearly these would need to be the nice, posh bits: I would suggest Malone west of the Lagan and maybe Ballyhackamore east of it. North Down may not need defences: surely even when undead the inhabitants of Bangor would be too polite to eat one another?
