Have your say

More than 1,000 people have signed a petition opposing plans to cut the number of roads gritted before snow in Sheffield.

Today marks the last day residents can have a say on the winter maintenance review – which could also relocate or remove grit bins and halt the recruitment of volunteer snow wardens.

Opposition councillors have been speaking to residents in Fulwood, Mayfield Valley and around Dore Road about the plans, which affect 100 miles of road mainly in the west and rural areas of the city and aim to save £100,000 a year.
