Seminar Objectives

Winter maintenance services are essential for local residents and businesses but changeable and unpredictable weather conditions, increasing litigation from the public and keeping pace with new innovations and technical developments can all add to the challenges facing Highways Winter Maintenance Services.

This seminar will explore exemplar councils in their winter maintenance approaches and tackle issues such as:

  • The legal requirements for winter maintenance managers
  • How have councils innovated to meet the winter challenge
  • The opportunities from improved weather prediction and technology
  • Monitoring performance and costs under the new guidance
  • Snow wardens, recruitment and retention
  • Communicating with the public and other stakeholders during severe weather

All these issues and more will be discussed and debated with ample opportunity for delegate to network and learn and share ideas and information from each other.

Alongside a trade exhibition this event is a timely and affordable learning seminar for all involved in the winter maintenance service.


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
