Preparing for winter weather - advice available on the GOV.UK website

More information about being prepared for winter weather (floods and extreme weather, power cuts) can also be be found all in one place on the GOV.UK website news page.


While every effort is made to ensure the information is accurate and up-to-date as possible, the Council cannot accept responsibility for information which has not been provided or updated by a third party.
