Some time ago a number of residents raised the issue of road safety and winter road conditions and, in particular, the need for grit bins in the streets to help residents to get cars in and out of the estate and also to ensure that routes are as safe as possible for pedestrians.

Discussions took place between various bodies including the residents group and West North West Homes (WNWH) and I am pleased to advise that 2 new bins have been installed and paid for by WNWH. These bins are located at the end of Adel Wood Close against the school fence and at the end of the footpath leading from Long Causeway along the side of the Spinney, as a result of a request from residents in Adel Wood Gardens. Both locations were discussed and agreed with the Chairman of the residents group.

At present I am advised that WNWH do not have any further plans for introducing any more grit bins.
