Information for Snow Champions

Snow Champions at work

The Snow Champion salt shaker scheme won’t be running during winter this year (2020/21). This is because the council is having to prioritise essential services during the Covid-19 pandemic.

No salt shakers or any other snow clearing equipment will be available.

The council will review the scheme in late 2021 to determine whether it is viable in the future. 

In the meantime, we would like to thank all the residents who have supported this scheme over the years.  

Please be assured that the council will continue to provide its comprehensive road gritting service across the borough.

In addition there are more than 540 grit bins placed at strategic locations across the borough. These are regularly checked and refilled over the winter.

However if you do notice one that is damaged, missing or tipped over please complete the online form.
