Winter Alert : Planned winter services actions from 4pm on Monday 23rd January 2017

Effective: 23 Jan 2017 to 24 Jan 2017

Based on the most recent weather forecast we plan to carry out precautionary gritting on all routes commencing at 16:00hrs on Monday 23rd January 2017 and again at 04:00hrs on Tuesday 24th January.
This afternoon will be dry with some sunshine, although cloud will start to arrive from the west later. The cloud will continue to push in from the west in the evening but there will be some clear periods this evening, so it will become cold.
Overnight, cloud cover will vary but should remain dry.
It will be cold tonight with RSTs widely below zero.
Should conditions change significantly we will issue another alert to inform you of our planned action.
Be aware of possible freezing conditions and drive with care.
In continuing cold weather conditions, when widespread ice is forecast, and as resources become available, we will progressively start gritting:
• main footpaths and car parks in town centres
• busy urban shopping areas
• important pedestrian links
• footpaths next to large schools
Any problem areas should be reported to our Customer Services Centre on 0345 600 6400 or you can report via www.northumberland.gov.uk/winter which will then be logged directly on our Severe Weather system and appropriate action will be taken.

Section 75 Partnership Agreement 0-19 Public Health Service (Healthy Child Programme)

Northumberland County Council and Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust would like to enter into a formal partnership agreement to allow the Trust to deliver the 0-19 Public Health Service on the Council's behalf.

To do this, the Council and the Trust, as potential partners, have to consult with any stakeholders who we think may be affected by the partnership being put in place. Although the partnership agreement itself will not directly affect the service model, we are really keen to take this opportunity to also seek the views of stakeholders about various aspects of the service.
