Referral of Notice of Motion: Second Winter Gritting Consultation

Decision Maker: Highways and Transport Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Full Council (15 December 2021) resolved to refer Councillor J Clowes’ Notice of Motion ‘Second Winter Gritting Consultation to the Highways and Transport Committee to determine whether or not the Motion be adopted.


Consideration was given to a report responding to the Notice to Motion raised at Council relating to the call for a second round of consultation on the amendments to the winter gritting network, entitled “Further Streamlined Winter Service Consultation.


Councillor J Clowes explained her reasons for bringing the motion to the attention of the Council.  She considered some of the data on the website to be confusing and lacked clarity.  Further to this she felt the information did not provide an analysis of the consultation results which had caused residents to struggle with understanding the scores allocated to certain roads within the borough’s network and which she felt needed addressing.  She welcomed the opportunity to raise the matter with Members of the Highways and Transport Committee, however she felt the report did not address all of the questions raised within the Notice of Motion.
