Parish Council to trial the provision of grit bins in Cross Roads, Haworth and Stanbury

With the recent spell of good weather it is easy to forget the snow that fell from ‘the Beast from the East’.

After the difficulties experienced this winter Councilors agreed that Grit Bins would be welcome in residential areas where gritting is not carried out by Bradford Council.
Therefore, to support local residents Haworth, Cross Roads and Stanbury Parish Council have set aside funding in this year’s budget for the provision of Grit Bins within the three villages.

Those who feel they would benefit from such a provision should check they are eligible by reading the ‘Grit Bin’ policy and complete the application form below:

The closing date for the initial round of applications is Thursday 31st May 2018 at 5.00pm.
