  • Please see below links to our website & information on where we salt, requests etc. faults-maintenance/ request-grit-bin-refill faults-maintenance/ view-gritting-routes We grit priority roads when road temperatures drop to around 1°C. 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. Thank you for reporting this matter.
