Salt Bins and winter weather

During winter weather the Town Council will as far as is possible, clear snow and ice from the properties it is responsible for, including the Market Place, the area around the War Memorial,the County Hall Museum precincts, the Guildhall,  Boxhill Wood and its play areas. For a list of play areas see Council Services and Facilities Recreation Areas, Open Spaces and Sports. Please note that clearing snow and ice may take some time depending on conditions and it is not possible to clear all areas immediately.  The Town Council cannot clear snow and ice from the highway, this being a County Council responsibility.

The Town Council also provide salt and grit for residents to use in icy and snowy conditions for areas around their properties. The bins are replenished during and after periods of winter weather but please contact tje Council on 01235 522642 or if you find a salt bins empty.
