  • This has been passed to our Winter Maintenance Team.

    We have a pre agreed salting/gritting route which is determined prior to winter to allow us to plan out the routes. Whilst we unfortunately can’t salt every single road in the county, we do cover over 44% of the county’s road network, a figure well above the national average.

    Most precautionary (primary) salting will be carried out during the evening or overnight, to avoid higher levels of traffic.

    For information on how we decide which roads to salt and when, please visit our webpage: Winter Salting.

    Foot paths are not routinely salted however, when possible, they may be cleared and treated after snowfall.

    Salt bins are filled before and during the winter season as priorities allow. They are provided at various locations throughout the county, which we encourage the public to use to treat localised icy conditions if necessary.

    For more information, visit our website:Salt bins
