The Local Co-ordination Centre (LCC) is a building or compound that has appropriate support arrangements in place to act as a base of operations in
the disaster zone. It is at this location that aid and relief supplies are delivered and distributed into the surrounding community. It is also at this
location that the Local Coordination Team (LCT) set up base camp and serve the surrounding community. The LCT is charged with managing the LCC
and ensuring that both DRTs and various types of aid achieve adequate coverage in the surrounding community. It is proposed that suitable facilities
should be chosen, based on the functionality requirements outlined below, and that a minimum of one building should be nominated for each local
authority area. Where it is considered appropriate, e.g. in large authorities or where specific situations exist, additional LCCs may be required.
Selection of the LCC is aided by information and advice from the LCT.
