Gritting policy

Gritting during the winter.

Written by Marcus

14 Nov, 2017

When heavy frosts, snow or ice are forecast overnight our contractors will normally attend early the next the morning to spread grit on communal pathways, car parks and other public areas.

The majority of roads around your home will be treated by your local Council, but Melin are responsible for a small number of roads, that we will also treat.

Winter is a time when the roads and paths can get icy and be potentially dangerous. Keeping our residents safe is a top priority for us. If you have any questions about gritting at our schemes, please call 01495 745910 or email
