Residents and businesses are legally entitled to clear ice and snow from outside their home or shop. As long as snow is cleared responsibly and without causing further risk to passers-by, there is no reason why they should be liable to anyone who may slip on the surface they have cleared. Tips on how to clear snow and ice safely.
All grit bins (This link will open in a new window) are checked by Surrey Council Council and filled before the start of the winter season in the third week of October. A further single mid-season refill will only be undertaken following snow, once resources become available from clearing the priority 1 and 2 networks and other affected emergency responses such as pothole repair. No adhoc re-filling will be undertaken.
The grit should only be used on the roads and is not for personal use. Misuse of the grit can lead to unnecessary shortages that can cause a danger to motorists.
If you need grit or salt for your own property, it can be bought from major builders' merchants or large garden centres.
Please check on and support your elderly and vulnerable neighbours and relatives.
Only dial 999 if it is a real emergency. For more information visit
