Snow Clearing -

There is no law stopping you from clearing snow and ice on the pavement outside your property, pathways to your property or public spaces.  This includes both public carriageways and footpaths.

If an accident did occur, its highly unlikely that you would be sued as long as you are:-

  1. careful;
  2. use common sense to make sure that you do not make the pavement or pathway clearly more dangerous than before.
