More Grass Cuts

Cllr Richard Jackson Nottinghamshire County Council portfolio holder for Transport & Highways has announced that the Council is increasing the number of times it will be cutting grass verges this year.
Richard said "We had originally intended to cut grass verges in urban areas four times a year. However, we have listened to public feedback and have now increased that frequency to five cuts. In rural areas the frequency remains at two cuts a year.
At the same time we have issued guidelines for a growing number of residents who are happy to cut the grass verges outside their homes. Again, this is a direct result of feedback from the Council’s Big Budget Conversation consultation process, when hundreds of people said they would be prepared to cut verges if it helped to release money for use on other priorities, such a repairing potholes."
 
The guidelines highlight what needs to be considered when cutting grass near the roadside.  They can be found online at: www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/roadverges
