Seminar Objectives

We appear to be seeing a shift from colder to wetter winters, increasing the prevalence of flooding management within the range of preventative measures undertaken by local authorities through their Winter maintenance services.

Technology continues to advance and forecasting is more reliable but authorities still have to deal with forces of nature which can sometimes overwhelm even the best laid plans.

This seminar will explore council’s approach to winter maintenance and tackle issues such as weather, innovation, flooding, active winter travel, communications and guidance.

All these issues and more will be discussed and debated with ample opportunity for delegates to ask questions and offer opinions.

Who should attend?

  • Highways directors, heads of service and managers
  • Winter maintenance specialists
  • Elected members with highways, environment or neighbourhood service responsibility
  • Press officers and communications team
  • Suppliers who want to learn about the latest developments from a commercial perspective
