We aim to repair potholes as quickly as possible. After a spell of severe weather, our road repair crews are very busy. To keep our crews on the road, you can help us by reporting online.


Report a pothole



When conditions are difficult, our bin crews will not risk public safety by driving heavy vehicles down icy roads. As a result, some streets may miss a collection. We will try to return to the street as soon as possible. If your bin was the only one in your street to be missed you can report it online.

School Closures

It is the decision of the Head Teacher/Governing Body to close a school. You will be informed through pre-agreed channels. If you have not been informed assume the school is open.


Staying Well

Severe weather can cause difficulties, particularly for vulnerable people such as the elderly.
