Hampshire County Council’s news-release on Snow and Ice

Keeping Hampshire moving through snow and ice

Since the start of 2019 the County Council’s winter fleet has spread more than 5,000 tonnes of salt to treat more than 40,000 miles of road, almost as far as driving twice around the Earth!

Hampshire Highways teams are on 24-hour standby, seven days a week, from 1 October right through until the end of April, to deal with winter conditions and ensure that Hampshire keeps moving, whatever the weather.The teams use detailed Hampshire-specific weather forecasts in combination with real time information from electronic roadside weather stations to make decisions about the best time to salt the roads, where to salt and how much salt to use. Forecast road surface and air temperatures, wind speed and direction, rainfall, and ice formation are all important factors in putting the winter fleet to work, which can sometimes be a round-the-clock operation.

Waste Prevention Community Grant Fund

Waste Prevention Community Grant Fund

With the cost of dealing with Hampshire’s household waste now regularly topping the £100 million a year mark, Hampshire County Council is offering grants of up to £5,000 to help kick start or expand projects, products and services which prevent waste at home.

Grants will be awarded to projects that reduce or prevent ‘household waste’ – this is different to recycling as it involves taking action before a product or material becomes waste. Grant applications open on March 1, and interested groups are encouraged to discuss potential projects with the County Council’s team prior to applying. Please contact the team via email: waste.prevention@hants.gov.uk to arrange an informal discussion.
