In recent years, the Parish Council has been gritting/salting the pavements in the village when needed under the Lengthsman Scheme. Before this when Herefordshire Council was solely responsible no gritting was carried out. Gritting pavements has been carried out early on several cold, frosty mornings recently which has been appreciated by many people.
However, the final decision must be made at the time in response to the conditions. A decision will be made on the morning by the Parish Council. The general principle being applied is that if it is 0 or below and damp on the pavements then grit will be applied as early as is reasonable. When it is damp but not freezing or freezing but not damp then it is not usually slippery.
Remember it is your responsibility to assess conditions on pavements and to take extra care if it is frosty or freezing.
