Winter weather updates

Gritting

The gritting teams were out last night and this morning salting main routes and community routes. The team will continue to monitor and react to the situation throughout the day. Further updates are available on the Council's social media channels.

Gritting involves an overnight grit of 388 miles of the boroughs busiest road network (often more than once each night). Each round takes around three hours for each of our ten gritters to complete. 

On street grit bins have been monitored and topped up where necessary to help volunteers grit the local community.

Bin collections

There may be disruption to some of the bin routes this morning due to the road conditions. Please leave your bin by the kerbside and we will collect it as soon as possible.
