Prepare for winter

We will keep you updated with advice and any disruption to services during the freezing weather.


Although gritting the highways is the responsibility of Lancashire County Council, we also do our best to make the pavements and public footpaths as accessible as possible. We will redeploy officers to help with gritting and work with parish councils to determine priority areas.

Gritting updates are provided by Lancashire County Council.

School closures

Lancashire County Council publishes a list of schools which are closed and the reason for the closure.
