Winter Gritting

Since the publication of the West Sussex County Council’s Winter Plans for gritting I have been approached by a number of residents expressing specific concerns about individual routes.

This is a decision for West Sussex County Council.  However in response to residents‘ concerns I raised the issue urgently with Cllr Paul Marshall, the new Leader of WSCC.

He has agreed that WSCC will look into the specific concerns being raised and will respond.

I recognise that the County Council has never gritted every road but it is important to get the balance right and I fully recognise the concerns being raised about the detail contained in the Winter Plan which I want to see addressed.
