Bad weather

During periods of bad weather, this page will provide updates on any interruptions to our services such as events and activities, housing repairs and waste/recycling collections.

It may also be worth keeping tabs on:

  • Gritting, grit bins and staying warm - Derbyshire County Council (DCC) is responsible for gritting the road network and for grit bins. Its snow info page provides details of these and offers advice on ways to keep warm.
  • Weather forecast - The Met Office provides regularly updated weather forecasts and weather warnings for the East Midlands.
  • Information on driving in winter weather conditions can be found on the RoSPA website.
  • Local schools - Bad weather may result in some schools being closed. For the latest information on school closures please tune in to your local radio station or check the DCC Snow Info page.
  • You can plan bus and train journeys from and to a particular destination through Traveline.
