Winter Maintenance Services

The Council has a "Snow Plan" in place to be prepared for severe and prolonged periods of freezing weather.

The Council has a supply of salt that is is stored at the Council's storage barn in preparation for severe and prolonged freezing conditions.

What services are running during the disruptive snow conditions? 

Residents and members of the community will be able to access information on services and school closures on this website. School closures will also be reported every morning on the BBC Wales website

Funerals - As part of our planning for adverse weather the Council is also ready to help out with funerals. 

Medical Appointments - We are working with the Aneurin Bevan Local Health Board and the Welsh Ambulance Service Trust to identify those patients that need urgent or essential medical assistance. Those having lifesaving treatment will be prioritised for assistance to ensure they are able to attend their appointments. During snow conditions, patients are asked to contact their hospital and the hospital will contact the local authority to provide assistance if necessary.
