A surprise winter warmer

During October and into November highways teams will be inspecting the nearly four hundred salt and grit bins in the Tiverton area in readiness for winter.
The unexpected continuation of the service by Devon County Council following warnings last  year that the service was under threat due to the 'Tough Choices' regime has been welcomed by the town council. 
Tiverton has responsibility for monitoring and supplying winter readiness services in areas outside Devon County Council's operation areas, of which salt bin replenishment was to be one such service. 
Town Clerk, John Vanderwolfe has welcomed this change of heart which will free up the budget allocated, for other measures associated with winter preparedness. He added "There are some areas which don't have bins but still fall foul of slippery pavements due to the sun being low in the sky. We normally put salt sacks at strategic places to reduce this risk, the freeing of some budget will allow us to do more in this area."
Councillor Stuart Hughes, Cabinet member for Highway and Flood prevention said " October sees the start of our winter service and despite  enjoying the unseasonal dry warm weather in recent weeks, we have had to start our preparations to ensure we are ready for winter.
Residents living in areas susceptible to slippery public pavements due to position and poor sun can request an assessment. If the council consider there to be a risk to health salt bags will be supplied for residents to use.
A limit to numbers of bags available for the winter will apply. Contact 01884 253404 or  the warden service on 07974623529
