Winter gritting and sale of salt bags

Responsibility for gritting

Hertfordshire County Council is responsible for gritting the public highway and footpaths within the Borough. Requests for the gritting of these areas should be directed to Hertfordshire County Council. Please call the customer services team on 0300 123 4047 or visit the website. This website also includes information on what is gritted and how the decision to grit is made.


The Borough of Broxbourne will only grit Council owned areas, such as public car parks and public areas around its facilities as and when required. During periods of bad weather and icy conditions the Council may grit roads and paved areas to make it safer for the Council’s vehicles to collect refuse and recyclables or to allow the town centre markets to be set up and operate safely.

Sale of salt to the general public

Members of the public should contact local builders’ merchants to purchase salt.
