What you need to know

If you, or a group of you, would like to be able to clear snow from your pavements, we will give you some basic training to keep you safe and supply you with:

  • a grit bin and supply of salt (delivered to you)
  • shovels
  • hi-visibility vests
  • gloves.

If you are part of a community group, we will supply you with a number of shovels and equipment which can be shared by your members.

The Department for Transport offer helpful advice on clearing snow and ice from pavements and public spaces in their Snow Code.
