Winter Preparations

 

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

We now have many more salt bins located in the parish for use during these bad weather conditions, plus extra stock 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 sited 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 these recent icy conditions. Thank you

CPC has spoken numerous times to OCC Winter Services about the service we get - we are very pleased that so far this year our service of gritting has been much improved.

Our Maintenance team work very hard from the early hours of each week day morning during these icy conditions, to get as much of the pavements cleared as possible for the main routes to schools, doctors and shops. Please support them in this work and try to clear some of the pavement outside your house if you can – this will greatly help the process of making our pavements safe to use.

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.
