To consider and agree the Winter Service Policy for 2013-14
The proposals for the winter service policy support the council’s priority for achieving greater value for money and more efficient delivery of services by working in partnership with other authorities.
The Strategy will allow the Council to continue to provide salt bags to parishes who request them and salt bins will be provided across the county, identified on a map on the Kent County Council website. In addition advice on how people in the Kent community can self help during winter conditions will also be published on the website, including road safety tips – all intended to help put the citizen in Control in accordance with the aims identified in Bold Steps for Kent
The service aims to ensure a safe operational highway network thus providing access to KCC services for all.
