Gritting

We grit our own car parks but Staffordshire County Council is responsible for the gritting of public roads and footpaths.

Gritting of roads

Priority is given to main A-roads, most B-roads, most bus routes and some other difficult roads. Roads will be treated whenever the temperature is due to drop below freezing. 

In particularly bad weather conditions gritting teams will try to treat as many minor roads as possible after the main routes have been done.

You can see the roads covered by looking at the gritting route map.

Grit bins

There are "self help" grit bins, or salt heaps, at various points around the district. These are for communal use in clearing public footpaths and roads not for use on your driveway.

You should buy your own supply of grit to treat your own property.

Staffordshire County Council also provides useful winter travel advice.
