Roads and Pavements (HIGHWAY)
West Sussex County Council has the primary responsibility for gritting / salting the roads. In support of this, Haywards Heath Town Council will be receiving a small supply of salt and will help to manage the impact of severe weather in our town where possible.
The Town Council’s Grounds Maintenance team (5 individuals) will, in the first instance, salt stocks and vehicle access permitting, focus on key areas at the discretion of the Town Clerk and Deputy Clerk.
Salt / Grit Bins
The County Council has committed to fill all salt bins in the town once only in Winter. A list of all salt bins in Haywards Heath can be downloaded here.
Salt stocks & vehicle access permitting the Town Council will deploy its Groundstaff to assist in replenishing empty salt bins. Again, salt stocks & vehicle access permitting, the Town Council will also try to deliver ‘hippo bags’ of salt where requests are made. Requests for assistance will need to be made to the Town Hall, where the Town Clerk and Deputy Clerk will deploy resources at their discretion.
