Grass Cutting Update

In recent months there have been issues with grass cutting in the Parish with varying standards.

The Parish Council has been communicating with the management at Hunts DC which we have now been assured that the grass cutting standards will improve, one of the main problems is that the Parish Council pay for 16 cuts a year whilst the County Council and Luminous pay for less cuts.

It will be an agenda item at future meeting to see whether the Parish Council can adopt the grass cutting for the whole village but this will obviously cost money. Once we have spoken to the County Council and Luminous we will be letting everyone know by newsletter and this website.

Some residents are complaining that the Parish Council is doing nothing, this is simply not the case, the latest grass cutting schedule and village plan are also available on this website.
