SWEP activation continues in freezing conditions


The city council’s Severe Weather Emergency Protocol (SWEP) remains in place as the ‘beast from the east’ continues to bring in bad weather.

To let the council and its partners know about a rough sleeper that you believe is in need of assistance, go to the SWEP webpage.

Last night, 14 people accessed the service. During the last full SWEP activation period, between 2 and 18 February, 46 individuals accessed accommodation for a total of 282 nights.

The council anticipates SWEP will run into next week.
