We encourage residents to spread the salt from the salt bins on pavements to prevent icing. Residents can clear snow from the pavement or any public space and it is unlikely that you will be sued or held legally responsible for any injuries on the path if you have cleared it carefully.
For more information go to the clearing snow and ice from pavements webpage on Gov.uk.
There are salt bins in many of our car parks and cemeteries and our staff will use these to keep our services open. Our street cleaning teams will help clear town centre precincts of snow and spread salt where needed
