Winter Services Plan

The Winter Services Plan outlines how we will carry our gritting and snow clearing.

Gritting Routes

Each winter from the beginning of October to the end of April, we use weather forecasts to decide when to grit roads.

All roads within the Borough have been categorised.

  • Category As will be pre-salted at any time in response to forecasts.
  • Category Bs will only be salted during the normal working day when icy conditions persist (or if extreme weather conditions are forecast).
  • Category Cs will only be salted in the most exceptional circumstances and this generally will occur in the aftermath of heavy prolonged snow.
