Community Gritting Scheme

Cambridgeshire County Council’s Community Gritting scheme allows local residents, as volunteers, to step in during extended periods of freezing weather to clear footways and footpaths in your area that are not part of the County Council’s gritting program.

Each parish decides which footways and paths should be gritted by volunteers and submits them to the County Council for approval. The routes are then discussed and an agreed route map is recorded. You are only covered by the County Council’s insurance for these agreed routes. You are not insured or trained to grit the roads and should never place yourself in conflict with live traffic
The County Council train volunteers and provide all the equipment required. Volunteers will be covered by the County Council’s insurance provided they attend the required training and only grit registered areas according to the County’s procedures.

Sutton Parish Council has not previously taken part in this scheme but would like to find out if there is anyone is the village who might like to become a community gritting volunteer and help keep designated areas of footpath clear when required.

More information on the scheme can be found on the County’s web pages please click here.

Please contact Sutton Parish Council by 19th September 2018 if you would like to volunteer for this scheme.

East Cambs District Council - Refuse Sacks

The yearly black bag rollout is upon us all.

ECDC are currently preparing all of the bags and calendars, ready to start delivering to the residents next week!

This year they are doing things slightly different, and will be including the collection calendars in with the roll of black sacks to ensure that the residents have everything necessary at the same time.

They have also purchased different bags from last year. These have an increased thickness, and therefore more durability, which is what residents have been asking for.
