Winter Preparations 2019


Getting Ready for Winter

CPC has worked hard over the past months to get ready for the forthcoming wintry conditions!

We have more salt bins located in the parish for use during these bad weather conditions and 5 more on order (see list below), plus extra stock of salt and grit if needed to refill bins.

Please remember the salt in the bins is intended for use on the public highway and pavements only, and that bins have been sighted in their locations for a specific reason.

There is no law against people clearing pavements or public spaces. Ministers have repeatedly welcomed "public-spiritedness" and said "common sense" and "benefit of the doubt" should always prevail when considering litigation.

Please help your neighbours and the elderly during icy conditions. Thank you

If you know of someone in need during these poor weather conditions, please contact CPC by email or phone (answer machine when closed) as we can arrange some assistance.

Alternatively, please call the Chinnor Good Neighbour Scheme on 01844 353500.

In severe conditions OCC Winter Services will grit the main bus routes only (B4009, B4445).
