The admission from Leicester City Council came after a member of the public sent a Freedom of Information request inquiring how the council was going to deal with an undead apocalypse.
The letter read: "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."
"We've had a few wacky ones before, but this one did make us laugh," said Lynn Wyeth, a spokesperson for the council. She added that zombie attacks aren't specifically mentioned in the council's emergency plans, but believes parts from them could be used, should such a scenario arise.
Other concerned citizens sent letters to the council regarding paranormal activity and haunted buildings.
