THE decision on whether North Somerset Council will move workers to Clevedon's Castlewood offices has been postponed due to the poor weather.

THE decision on whether North Somerset Council will move workers to Clevedon's Castlewood offices has been postponed due to the poor weather.

The £16million plan to buy the offices in Tickenham Road would see hundreds of workers move to Clevedon and was due to be discussed by the full council tonight (Tues).

However, council chiefs have called off the meeting because of safety fears associated with an expected heavy snowfall.

In a press release issued by the council, it says that between six and 10 inches is expected to fall from 11pm through to rush hour tomorrow morning.

Gritters will be out in force from 6.30pm today and ploughs will be fitted to them after this.

Libraries in Clevedon, Nailsea and Portishead will close an hour earlier at 6pm and the council has warned that waste collections may also be affected.

Residents have been advised to put out refuse when it is scheduled to be collected so it can be picked up as soon as possible.

*Details of salting routes as well as any school, library and leisure centre closures will be available on the council website at
