Gritting during the snowy weather

spire Housing is working hard to grit footpaths around our sheltered housing schemes and flats during the current snowy weather.

Our grounds maintenance contractor Glendale and our estate caretakers are working hard to apply rock salt to 138 sites owned by Aspire Housing.

We prioritise areas such as pathways and communal doorways that are used most frequently by customers.

There is however a limit to the number of areas where we can practically apply rock salt, using the staff and rock salt we have available. This means we cannot treat all pathways and we do not treat car parks.

While the cold weather and snow persist, please take extra care when moving around outside and using your car, if possible limiting your journeys to those that are essential.
