Housing Advice

Gritting, Roads, Paths, Car Parks, Drainage Crew

Please be aware that during winter weather, extreme care should be taken even when roads have been gritted as even this will not ensure that they are entirely free of ice.

Gritting

  • Latest winter roads maintenance and gritting information
  • Primary Gritting Routes in Warwickshire
  • Schools Schools are only gritted if they are already on the agreed gritting routes
  • Grit bins - Warwickshire County Council is responsible for ensuring the roads are gritted but does not provide grit bins.
  • Rural Areas - Parish Councils can provide grit bins in locations which have been agreed with the County Council as highway authority and the County Council will replenish these as and when resources are available after the primary routes have been gritted.
  • Urban Areas - Similarly in urban areas Residents Associations and Town Councils have provided grit bins which the County Council will replenish.
  • Private Purchase - Members of the public can purchase grit bins but must get permission from the County Council as highway authority for their location.
  • What about replenishing these? - The location of bins is strictly controlled and they tend to be authorised on estate roads, mainly cul-de-sacs, where drivers have no other way of exiting the road, which are away from precautionary gritted routes and have a steep incline.

Adding new roads
To have a road added to the gritting route an application should be made in writing to the area office and it will have to show some connectivity to the existing route.
