Lets hope Highways are ready, Hilllingdon Council contacted the Met office and were warned of possible snow, so in anticipation they purchased an additional 7 snow gritters which i believe can have snow ploughs attached, as there is no sell by date, they will be in use for years to come, anyone know what Herts County Council/TRDC have done?

Some years ago I contacted a company that makes snow ploughs that can be attached to vehicles especially landrovers, which CGPC have, the cost was £800 and would have lasted at least ten years as it had rubber edging on both edges which could be reversed.

Contacted HCC who stated that they had a similar arrangments with some farmers and paid them around £50 a day to keep some roads clear.

As HCC only attend the main roads it would have allowed CGPC to attempt to clear the side roads.

When I explained the elderly could become housebound during bad weather
one cllr stated they could drive in the snow, another, when would it be used, until now we have had heavy snowfall every year.

Forward planning!
