It has been agreed by the Cranbrook and Sissinghurst Parish Council that a contractor will spread salt and grit on the access roads within the three car parks this winter. This will be done in accordance with the frequency guidance issued by Kent County Council’s Highways department after due consideration of the weather forecast.
The Parish Council have made no arrangements for snow ploughs to be used within the car parks.
The salt and grit bins throughout the Cranbrook and Sissinghurst parish are generally the responsibility of Kent Council Council to refill when empty. Spreaders are available from the Parish Office at the corner of Stone Street, under the Vestry Hall. There is also one available from Ropemaker’s Barn, The Street, Sissinghurst.
The pavements will not be cleared by the Parish Council. Residents are encouraged to clear the areas in front of their own property, although this will be entirely at their own risk.
Throughout the winter season all residents and visitors to Cranbrook and Sissinghurst must use the roads, car parks and pavements with due care and attention. It is must be clearly understood that all car parks are used at the owners risk.
