Essex County Council has the responsibility of keeping our roads safe. This includes gritting during icy or snowy weather.

They have entered into a partnership with a number of Town and Parish Councils, including Burnham on Crouch Town Council, to provide bags of salt for the community to use on public highways and footpaths in their parish with the agreement of the Parish Clerk during bad weather at locations that Essex County Council do not at present salt.

Each bag weighs about 20 kilos so carrying them requires transport and some strength.  The bags are free of charge. They are not available for private premises.

Essex County Council suggest suitable places for this salt to be used as footpaths outside doctors surgeries, local shops and services and access routes to the main bus stops.

To access the salt please contact Burnham on Crouch.
