The local councils have been working together to try and ensure the best use of limited resources, in dealing with snow and ice.
When necessary, the County Council will grit these roads in our Parish:
In severe conditions the County Council enlist the help of some local contractors and farmers to clear, but not grit, some minor roads in Hurstpierpoint following heavy snowfall:
These have been chosen because of their particular importance and where gradients can cause problems. If you live on any of these please try to keep your car off the road, to help the snow-clearance.
Wherever possible bulk bags of grit will placed as follows:
These are available for nearby residents' use on pavements - but not for private use. Where possible our local maintenance team will be around to help organise their use. You only need to lightly sprinkle the grit - otherwise it is wasteful and adds to water pollution.
Would you be available to help clear the pavements when it snows? If so, please contact the Parish Council office on 01273 833264 or firstname.lastname@example.org and we will tell you about the scheme.
