Salt bins

As I've posted before, Cornwall Council helpfully lists the roads that it salts in bad weather. For those areas which do not get salted, there may or may not be salt bins provided where residents can collect salt and spread it themselves.

A number of people have been in touch with me to ask if they can get an additional salt bin in their area. The Council has pledged to consider new salt bins, but not until the summer.

Here's an idea from Sutton Council in London which I am asking Cornwall Council to consider following - it's a map showing where salt bins are (it should be easy to add these to the existing mapping service) and an interactive service to help residents to report when salt stocks are low.

An excellent suggestion. You can count on my support.
