Please see below information regarding our Winter Service.
What we do
When icy conditions are forecast we will grit primary routes first. This is around 42% of all the roads in East Sussex including all A and B roads and some C roads. You can view our gritting routes here.
We inspect and fill all East Sussex County Council owned grit bins once a year, in the autumn
We provide a 24/7 gritting service. We schedule our gritters based on weather forecasts and road surface temperatures
We do not have the resources to routinely grit footpaths or pavements. We encourage residents to help themselves by clearing snow and ice from public areas near their properties
