Snow Warden and gritting
The majority of the roads in Waverley are not adopted by RMBC. The Borough council focus' on gritting roads leading to fire stations/hospitals and cover bus routes.
The roads usually gritted by Harworth are Highfield Lane and Lescar Road.
Residents can grit paths or roads from the several yellow grit boxes around the estate which developers have sited. These are located on the corner of Cressbrook Road and Stephenson Way, back from the noticeboard on Tideswell Walk, at the end of Rowsley Drive, Ashfield Court, Cherry Wood Way and on the corner of Ashbourne Way and Calver Way. This year the Land Trust agreed to fill the yellow grits bins, and the WCC is aware this did not happened before the snow arrived on Sunday. It has been chased up.
If you wish to become a Snow Warden on Waverley, RMCB will supply the following equipment to you as a volunteer;
