You are required to clear snow here
If you live on a public road, you are required to clear snow and put down salt or grit outside your property.
If you live on a private road or adjoining a footpath, you are required to clear snow and put down salt or grit on the pavement, footpath and road outside your property. You must clear to the middle of the road, while your neighbour opposite is responsible for clearing the other half of the road.
How to clear snow and put down salt or grit
- Clear the full width of the pavement outside your property (min. 1.5 m)
- Sprinkle with salt or grit, avoiding trees and plants
- Please clear snow so that it does not obstruct pedestrians, cyclists and bus users. Make sure there is clear access to fire hydrants, emergency installations, etc.
- Clear a path through banks of snow, including any created by municipal snow clearers
Your pavement should generally be kept clear of snow from 07.00 to 22.00.
You may be liable for damages in the event of an accident if you have not cleared the snow from outside your property and put down salt or grit.
