Bringing some light to the great salt debate

APSE’s annual Highways and Street Lighting seminar took place over the last couple of days at Newcastle Marriot. The seminar incorporated ‘The Great Salt Debate’ which was a chance to look back at the problems with winter gritting this year from all perspectives. A debate between local authorities, grit suppliers and national agencies teased out some of the main issues that hindered services this winter and hopefully lessons have been learned that can be acted upon in order to avoid a repeat in future winters.

Being in the North East of England gave me a chance to catch up with colleagues in the school meals sector in that area. Colin Ranson from Sunderland Council and Anita Brown from Stockton brought me up to date with the latest issues around uptake and cost pressures.
