High probability of snow week commencing 26th February

The Met Office weather forecast for next week indicates that there is a high probability of snow starting Monday evening and overnight. It is too early to accurately predict where the snow will be heaviest and how much accumulation there will be.

Day time and overnight temperature are likely to remain very cold for the few days afterwards so any snow that does accumulate is likely to remain.

Precautionary Salting operations will continue through-out the period and snow ploughs will be fitted when required to ensure main roads are kept open.

We are therefore advising Town and Parish Councils to be prepared to enact their Winter Management Plans if /when we issue an instruction to do so. We will continue to monitor the Met Office advice over the weekend and will issue a further update on Monday 26th Feb. If the situation changes significantly over the weekend we advise Town and Parish Councils to monitor the highways Twitter account for updates.

Let it snow!

The Parish Council has a winter management plan in place in the event it snows.  The salt bin in Henley has been filled and West Sussex County Council has delivered salt and hippo bags for the rest of the Parish.  The Parish Council will liaise with the relevant contractors who help with gritting and clearance of roads and footpaths.  If you have any queries or concerns on clearance if the weather does worsen please contact Jose Galego 07702 315830 at the Parish Council in the first instance.
