Storms

Following three storms in a row our Streetscene staff are still busy across the county borough cleaning up.

About 35 trees fell due to the winds and many more were damaged.

Work in social care and be the lifeline your community needs.

The A525 and Straight Mile at Bangor on Dee remain closed. Please do not drive through any flooded roads and use the diversions in place.

Bin collections were unaffected by the storms.

Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said, “There’s a lot of work ahead to check trees in all our country parks, cemeteries and crematorium and people are urged to be cautious if visiting any of these areas.

“I’d like to thank staff for their work throughout the storms and in the weeks to come. They’ve risen to the challenges faced in order to keep people safe.”

We’re also aware that there was some relatively minor damage to one of the viewing platforms attached to the Engine House at Minera which we are currently assessing.

A part of the platform has collapsed onto the ground and this area is fenced off and has warning signs displayed.

Staff have visited the site and confirmed that immediate action isn’t needed at the moment. The structure will be properly assessed and remedial action undertaken as necessary.

If you’re looking for a new career and want to help people in your community, a job in social care could be the right move.
