Application process

A technician will then assess the site based on the following risk assessment.

  • Bends
    Bends on steep gradients where the result of loss of control of a vehicle would be significant i.e. injury to occupants, pedestrians or significant damage to the vehicle. In determining severity the likely speed of the vehicle needs to be taken into consideration.
     
  • Junctions
    In general this will be at a minor road joining a major road where the down slope would cause a vehicle to carry on into the path of an oncoming vehicle on the main road. In determining severity the likely speed of the vehicle needs to be taken into consideration and if the resultant loss of control of a vehicle would be significant in terms of injury to occupants, pedestrians or damage to the vehicle.

    If the assessment does not show that the location is a high risk site and if the request is from a Parish Council or Community Group then a grit bin can be provided if a contribution is made towards its provision and annual filling costs. Currently the costs are £100 to install and £40 per annum to fill.
