The weather forecast is for wintry showers, with possible snow on higher ground over central and northern Hampshire accompanied by strengthening winds overnight and into tomorrow. There is a Met Office yellow warning out for strong winds from midnight until tomorrow evening, and the gusts are likely to cause some damage to trees and this may disrupt transport in the County tomorrow. We will have extra resources available to help deal with fallen trees and other issues.
There will be a cold start to the evening, and road surface temperatures are likely to dip below zero for a time, therefore we are carrying out a gritting operation on the primary route network in central and northern Hampshire starting from 4:00pm this afternoon, once the afternoon rain has cleared. Unusually we will be spreading dry salt rather than brine, as the road surfaces are already wet, with more rain/sleet and snow flurries forecast for later in the night. The gritters will then be on standby for a second run if required overnight. It typically takes around 4 hours to complete a full salt run of the primary route network, especially with the stronger salt mix being used today in response to the forecast weather conditions.
Exceptionally the Highways Operations Centre (HOC) will be opened tomorrow from 8:00 am until 3:00pm to help us to manage the response and deal with damage reports from the public which should be reported using the on-line system only (links below). In the hope that it is helpful for you in responding to any enquiries the advice we have issued through our website for contacting Highways is set out below:
Please report road problems using the County Council’s online reporting service: www.hants.gov.uk/transport/roadmaintenance/roadproblems
Emergency issues on the highway can be reported outside of office hours, by calling 101.
Report fallen trees online at: https://www.hants.gov.uk/transport/roadmaintenance/roadproblems/treehedge
In an emergency situation where there is a danger to life call 999.
We will monitor the situation over the weekend and decisions will be made through the normal procedures in respect of further salting (gritting) of the Highway network as required and for maintenance and deployment of additional resources to tackle the impacts of Storm Arwen.

I’m writing to you to ask for your assistance with our project, A Digital Winchester.
Digital Winchester survey here.
Digital Winchester call for evidence here.
Winchester City Council is calling on residents and businesses to share their experiences to help shape the future of the digital economy. The short survey is designed to capture the local experience of current broadband and mobile services and to gain insight into future needs.
COVID-19 has been a catalyst for change and our home and work lives have relied more heavily on better digital connectivity so we can stay in touch with friends, family and colleagues. Excellent infrastructure is essential and the council wants to understand the needs of everyone who uses digital services in any way.
In addition to the survey, we also have a call for evidence request:
The Council has set out four challenges it is seeking to answer through this work.
· Future potential
We are asking residents, businesses, organisations, employers, innovators and investors to send us their evidence to support these challenges.
Please upload any relevant research and information from articles, published papers documents and opinions to build up an evidence base for these challenges, here.
Sign up to our business newsletter for news about future funding and business support here.
Thanks so much for your assistance in advance.

NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH 2021 CRIME AND COMMUNITY SURVEY LAUNCHED
For the second year running, we want to hear your thoughts about crime, community, and how effective Neighbourhood Watch is.
The survey, launched on Wednesday 20th October 2021, is open to the public across England and Wales, regardless of whether they live in a Neighbourhood Watch area or not.
The results will enable us to better understand on a national and regional level crime, fear of crime and benchmark whether membership to a Neighbourhood Watch scheme, or living in a Neighbourhood Watch area, has an impact on levels of crime, concern about crime, neighbourliness, and the willingness of communities to work together.
Last year our survey received just over 30,000 responses from across England and Wales providing us with a rich and useful set of data. This year we will be able to compare our data to last year’s results.
A good response in all regions will ensure we can publish a national report and provide individual regions with their own reports.
All data will be anonymised and aggregated and will be used by Neighbourhood Watch to ensure our work is effective, inclusive, and representative.
The survey closes on the 16th of November. Thank you for your support.
