ROADS in Calderdale could get more gritting bins when councillors meet to discuss winter road plans.
Councillors are to consider the way roads and pavements are maintained during severe winter weather.
Earlier this year the cabinet approved a comprehensive review of the council’s Winter Service.
Councillors, parish and town councils and residents across the borough were asked for their opinions.
Thirty recommendations for improving the current service will now be discussed by the cabinet on Monday, November 16.
The proposals including increasing salt bins, putting roads leading up to all schools on precautionary salting routes and making sure roads leading to essential services like doctors are treated as a priority.
It also suggests carrying out a further review to look at how the treatment of footpaths can be made more effective.
Clr Amanda Byrne, portfolio holder for economy and environment, said the severe weather experienced last winter had brought this issue to the forefront of people’s minds.
She said: “We will be considering the recommendations and associated costs in detail.
“Public safety is absolutely paramount and cabinet has already agreed that any constraints on budget will not supersede that fact.”
