We've been recruiting town and parish councils to help keep paths and pavements clear this winter.
We've provided town and parish councils with:
between 0.5 to 1 tonne of salt free of charge.
free training courses for up to two representatives to attend regarding the safe operations for the clearance of snow and ice from footways.
- regular updates of when routes within their area have been gritted.
In return the town/parish council will be asked to:
provide details of those footways within their parish that will be treated using the free salt.
encourage local residents to help themselves by clearing areas of the footway adjacent to their property.
identify a 'snow warden'. A snow warden will co-ordinate activities locally and provide us information about local conditions.
identify an individual who has authority to order the refilling of grit bins on behalf of the town/parish council - this may or may not be the Snow Warden.
