Brent has the grit to deal with winter

The Public Realm team has been checking the forecast 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, since the start of the Winter Service on 1 November.

Over 326 grit bins are on street and filled with salt; gritters have been serviced and the service is ready for the onset of Winter.

Our weather forecaster advises that temperatures may fall below freezing over the weekend and Public Realm is watching carefully.

Gritters are on standby in readiness for any sudden change in the weather and we have 1,500 tonnes of salt in stock.

The link below details grit bin locations; the priority network we treat; and government advice on residents gritting pavements in the “Snow Code”.
