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.
