Spread Our Salt!
- Lancashire County Council
- United Kingdom
The severe snow and icy conditions so far this winter have left roads and footpaths in Pendle and throughout Lancashire covered in dangerous ice.
There has been a failure to grit many of these roads and footpaths before the snow fell and also afterwards. Residents are asking "where are the gritters"? only to be told by county hall bosses the situation was something people ‘have to live with’ in the area. We feel this is unacceptable and many pensioners and children have ended up in casualty due to ungritted roads and footpaths, schools have been closed, and local businesses are losing trade.
The Winter gritting service is something we all pay for through our taxes and we deserve a much better service. This petition calls on Lancashire County Council to salt and grit our roads and footpaths in time, and to an acceptable standard throughout short and extended periods of snow, frost and ice.
We call on Lancashire County Council to sort out the shambles of winter gritting and salt our roads and pavements properly.
The Spread Our Salt! petition to Lancashire County Council was written by Gary and is in the category Local Government at GoPetition.
