“Be Aware” of Changes Due to Snow

Residents of Wrexham are advised that there may be some service disruption as snow is expected later in the week.

Officers are monitoring weather forecasts and members of the public are advised to stay aware of any changes caused by snow.

A warning from the Met Office warns of snow and poor weather expected from Thursday until Saturday.

Members of the public are advised to put bins and recycling containers out as normal, but services could be affected by the snow.

Residents are also advised to keep an eye on the council’s website for information on school closures; make themselves aware of contact details for their child/children’s school transport operator/s and prepare for any potential changes to transport arrangements.

Cllr David A. Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “With poor weather and snow are expected across the UK, we advise members of the public to stay aware of arrangements via our online services.

“Snow can catch people unaware, but if people prepare themselves accordingly, it should cause minimum disruption to their day-to-day routine.

“It is likely that services will not be affected, but members of the public will be kept appraised of any changes.

“As the weather is checked daily from October, we are more than prepared for any increased gritting activity and have plenty of salt stocked.

Members of the public with access to e-mail can sign up for updates of gritting activity at www.wrexham.gov.uk/register, with information on gritting services and routes available at http://www.wrexham.gov.uk/english/travel/winter/routes_map.htm.

Information updates will also be available on the Council’s Twitter and Facebook profiles.
