Information and advice during cold weather conditions


Keep warm keep well

Advice about keeping you and your family warm and well during cold weather. 


Gritting operations

In adverse weather conditions we treat the main routes across the borough to help keep traffic moving and to minimise delays and accidents.  More information about gritting routes, salt bin locations and our winter service.


Waste collections

In the event of difficult weather conditions, we will make decisions about sending out the waste crews based on an assessment of the condition of roads, footpaths and the weather forecast.

Schools

In extreme conditions, it may become necessary for a school to shut.  Please follow any instructions you have received from your school and check school websites for updates.
