Winter awareness

Be prepared for winter

While last winter was relatively mild, the previous winters saw extended periods of severe winter weather and we want to get people thinking about their preparations for winter conditions on the roads and footpaths. 

Being prepared for winter affects everyone and this week there'll be information and advice appearing in council Q&As, in the local press, on the radio, on our website and on Twitter as part of our winter awareness week.

During the week we'll cover:

  • clearing snow and ice from footpaths and driveways
  • preparations before you take to the road
  • winter driving tips
  • main things to remember
