‘Be Aware’ of Potential Disruption & Changes to Services Due to Snow Forecast

Residents of Wrexham are advised that there may be some service disruption due to the snow forecast at the end of this week.

The Met Office are forecasting that the region will be hit with poor weather and snow between Thursday 12 January and Saturday 14 January.

Current forecasts show that snowfall in the Wrexham area will begin at 5pm tomorrow afternoon and will continue through until the early hours of Friday morning.

As a result council officers are monitoring weather forecasts and members of the public are advised to stay aware of any changes caused by snow.

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

While it unlikely that services will be affected, 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.”

School closures will appear on the council’s website

Members of the public with access to e-mail can sign up for updates of gritting activity at , with information on gritting services and routes also available on the Wrexham Council website.

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

Of course if it does turn out to be Snowmageddon, we will be doing our best to keep you updated on all the traffic, travel and potential closures.
