We provide a salting and gritting service from October through to April (longer if forecasts indicate that cold weather will continue). This year, our Winter Service ends on 28 April 2017.
This service operates on a standby basis, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and includes:
- Salting roads and snow ploughing
- Clearing pavements during prolonged freezing or snowfall
- Providing grit bins at priority locations.
