Treatment Of Weeds On Footways

A number of residents have raised concerns about the weeds growing on pavements and in gutters in our area.

Lib Dem councillor Steve Delaney said, “Like grass cutting, the spraying of weeds was not an activity permitted during the initial lockdown so weeds have grown to an unusually high level and have spread like wildfire”.

“The council employs a contractor to carry out this task and they commenced work a few weeks ago. Weather permitting, all weeds should hopefully have been treated by 7th August”.

Please do not hesitate to contact me about any areas of weeds that appear to have been missed by the contractors.
