Clocks changing

The clocks change this weekend which means opening hours for our tips and cemeteries change for winter. Check before visiting.

When are the tips open?

Gritting

The Highways Agency is responsible for gritting and ploughing the A50 and A500. 

We have to spread the salt (commonly known as grit) before the roads become icy or snow starts to fall, although this is not always possible. 

We try to avoid gritting during rush hour.

We grit our footpaths in the city centre and the main shopping centers where there are higher numbers of pedestrians, as well as outside hospitals, secondary schools, homes for the blind and other similar properties. 

We also prioritise areas with gradients of more than ten per cent.
