Roads and Infrastructure
Council is experiencing particular issues in Kincardine and Mearns with a number of routes impacted by trees. Teams are attending in all affected areas and assisting with tree removal. Please drive safely and avoid routes/areas with fallen or hung-up trees.
Stonehaven and the coastal area are particularly affected so we have no collection routes currently going out. Stonehaven and Portlethen household recycling centres are also closed. All remaining depots/HRCs are operating as normal and collections are being undertaken, however there may be some roads we cannot currently access due to fallen trees.
If you need help, or need to report fallen trees – via Police on 101
Power outages – via SSEN on 105
Non-urgent medical issues – via NHS on 111
