Survey over new gritting proposals for Derbyshire

People have been asked for their views on planned changes to the gritting of Derbyshire roads in the winter.

Councils across the UK faced grit shortages after severe cold weather last winter.

The county council wants to use a new grading system to label roads as either primary, secondary or tertiary routes for salt spreading.

The council said it would still be gritting 1,555 miles of roads. This cost the authority £4.5m last winter.

Residents have been asked to answer a questionnaire on the proposals which is available on the county council's website or at libraries in the county.
