The City of Edinburgh Council have established a severe weather page on their website which they will use to communicate in the event of severe weather this winter.
It contains information about preparations they are making, what we can do, how they decide which roads to clear and schools to close, and offers an interactive map of gritter routes and grit bins.

This blog is where you will find community council information, including meeting times, minutes and agenda. Do please comment on postings.
