Winter plans on agenda

Have your say

City chiefs face criticism for not focusing enough on preparing some areas of the city for winter weather.

Measures worth £1.5 million, including adapting mowers and roadsweepers into snow ploughs and increasing salt supplies, were today set to be approved by councillors.

But some councillors say more needs to be done to help the high-lying areas that traditionally suffer worst from heavy snow.

Colinton/Fairmilehead councillor Jason Rust said: “The absence of reference to some of the most affected parts of the city is a cause for concern.”
