Winter Service Plan 2018 / 2023

To seek approval for the arrangements being made for the provision of winter service during the period of 2018 through to 2023 season, as set out in the Winter Service Plan in appendix 1, the plan will be updated annually to ensure the plan is accurate and relevant to the service required by Herefordshire.


The Winter Service Plan continues to build on existing best practice and the findings of reviews that have taken place both locally and nationally. Herefordshire Council will continue to meet its duties towards the maintenance of the highway network in full and by working in partnership with Herefordshire’s communities, wherever practicable, enhance the county’s resilience to the impact of prolonged or severe winter weather. To ensure the plan remains accurate authority is sought for officers to annually update the plan; any changes proposed which significantly alter the plan priorities would be subject to further governance.
