We have had numerous requests for salt bins to be refilled or for additional bins to be installed across the parish.

The bins were checked before the Christmas period and seem to have been depleted very quickly in a short space of time.  We have now ordered some more salt and they will be refilled as a matter of urgency.

The bins are provided for communal roads and pavements and should not be used for personal use.

Cornwall Council initially fill the salt bins but any subsequent refills have to be met through the Parish Council’s budget.  Therefore, any requests for additional bins have to be assessed and taken forward to our Amenities Committee for their consideration and recommendation to the Full Council.  In the last 72 hours we have had requests for 9 additional bins.
