Lancashire County Council (LCC) are responsible for gritting the adopted roads. LCC do not grit every road in Lancashire as they concentrate on keeping traffic moving on priority roads.

During periods of high or prolonged snowfall, we will work with LCC to clear snow on footpaths in high priority areas around the town centre.

View more information on gritting on the Lancashire County Council website.


Grit bins

LCC are responsible for grit bins on streets. Grit bins should only be used for roads and pavements in the area and not for gritting private property.

Any requests in relation to gritting or grit bins can be submitted to LCC. 

View more information on grit bins, request a new grit bin, a repair to a grit bin or a grit bin refill  on the LCC website.
