Local councils were "as prepared as ever" to deal with bad weather with "1.4 million tonnes of salt stockpiled" to grit roads with, the Local Government Association (LGA) said.
Peter Box, the chairman of the Local Government Association's economy and transport board said councils were prepared for snow.
Councils will treat as many roads as possible and have also filled thousands of community grit bins and recruited volunteers to help people clear pavements, paths and side streets when needed.
It is pleasing that this report acknowledges the need to raise awareness that there is no law against people clearing pavements or public spaces.
