A Ballymena councillor wants DRD to adopt a ‘common sense’ approach to the provision of more grit boxes in the local area.

Cllr. Timothy Gaston of the TUV says he has been inundated with calls from worried constituents.

He said. “I have been contacted day and daily by constituents worried about the lack of salt and salt boxes in their neighbourhood. The DRD criteria for salt boxes is high, which is causing many refusals where if a common sense, case by case, approach was taken there would not be such refusals.”
