Winter weather, flooding and council services
 
 

During adverse weather, such as snow and ice, and periods of flooding, there is always the possibility that some council services could be affected.

Rubbish and recycling
Snow, ice and flooding can make some roads, particularly in rural areas, inaccessible. This may mean that we have to postpone refuse collections - we will post any changes on our website as well as Facebook and Twitter.

Look out for vulnerable neighbours
Spare a thought for family, friends or neighbours who may be at risk of ill health or need assistance during the cold. If you have concerns about any elderly or vulnerable people in your community during times of adverse weather, call: 0845 603 5630 or out of hours 0845 600 4555.

Coastal safety
During periods of adverse weather and heavy rainfall it is not uncommon for some erosion and ground movement to take place along the coastline and cliff tops. To ensure your safety, please take notice of any warning signs when visiting the coast.

Flooding

Advice on flooding can be found at www.hants.gov.uk/flooding and flood warnings can be found on the Environment Agency website.
