Muir calls for gritting arrangements to be sorted

North Down Alliance Councillor Andrew Muir has called upon North Down Borough Council and the Roads Service to sort out arrangements for the gritting of town centre footpaths before the winter arrives.

Cllr Muir stated “Last year town centre pavements were treacherous and arguments continued concerning who was responsible for gritting them. Towards the end of the cold spell grit was spread by North Down Borough Council but this was widely viewed as too little and too late with businesses trade badly affected.

“Earlier this year I raised the issue and again I am urging the Council and Roads Service to come to an arrangement which ensures that town centre pavements are gritted when snow and ice is experienced. We simply cannot afford to leave businesses inaccessible for days.”
