We provide grit bins for residents to use on public paths and roads. If you find one is running low, you can request a refill.
We do not routinely grit or salt footpaths. During severe weather, we work with many local organisations to clear some steep and well-used pavements.
New grit bin requests
If you are a business, parish council or residents’ association request a grit bin by calling 01522 782070.
We will only approve a request for a new grit bin if we believe it will be in a suitable spot. It must also benefit as many people as possible.
The standards, policies and objectives of winter salting and maintenance of our roads and footways are available in our Winter service plan.
