With cold weather forecast for Pembrokeshire this week, the issue of salt/grit storage has been raised at a recent Narberth Town Council meeting as it was revealed no public salt bins are currently located within the boundary of the town.

Since 2010, the responsibility for buying new salt bins has passed to Town and Community councils in Pembrokeshire, with the County Council maintaining responsibility for refilling twice a year.

County Councillor for the Narberth Urban ward Cllr Marc Tierney has now urged the Town Council to look at purchasing some new salt bins, to be located at key positions around the town, so that side roads and pavements not currently gritted by the Local Authority could be treated by volunteers during times of ice and snow.

Cllr Tierney said: “Whilst ice and snow are relatively rare events, black ice in particular can lead to dangerous conditions for pedestrians and motorists.

“The local authority has offered town councils across the county the option of purchasing new bins and I hope that Narberth Town council will take part in this initiative.”
