During the last cold spell there was a lot of ice on the Asda car park and some residents had fallen on the ice. I took this up with the Council’s Parking Manager and set out below is the response I have now received: 

I am sorry that your resident experienced difficulties in using the car park. We have over 50 car parks across the City and it is not always possible to respond to adverse weather conditions as quickly as we would like. 

We have now made arrangements with Asda to carry out gritting of the car park in future. We will supply the grit stored in the grit bins and their staff will be responsible for spreading it. This should enable us to respond to further incidents more effectively.”
