Grass Verges - Update

I have once again been speaking with officers at Leicestershire County Council about the state of grass verges in Whitwick and Thringstone.

To try and get problems resolved officers have agreed to timetable the next cut for the area earlier than had previously been scheduled.

The grass cutting gang will be reminded of the importance of a consistent finished appearance, paying particular regard to the 'tufty' areas, notably around Hall Lane, which remained uncut after the last round of mowing.

I can also confirm that mowers have also been sent back to Booth Road, Thringstone, which was left uncut in the last mowing round.

As always, let me know if you have any issues with Grass Verges.

  4. The bushes up to new swannington school are horrendous. They contain stinging nettles and there's always a child being stung on way or from school,even if your careful. The worse thing is they always cut the bushes back a week before school closes or when the school has closed. Either way its not acceptable in my eyes when its a public path mainly used by families.

    1. Glad to hear it's been cut Tony. Hopefully the cutting will now be more regular and less 'tufty'!

  9. The grass cutting is a joke. Large areas completely missed. The cutters seem to take no pride in their work. But of course its the council. ie Nobody will be disciplined

  10. Well done Leon part of the jitty opposite The Fox Inn has been trimmed, now all we need to do is get the landlord who owns the hedge on the other side to get it cut...but I doubt if she will as all her properties are an eye sore.

  12. Howe Road, Whitwick has some grass that's being cut and other that keeps being left. Bit confusing, can you shed light on why please?

    1. Off the top of my head I don't know why although it is entirely possible on Howe Road that different bits are the responsibility of different Councils (with two different mowing cycles)!

      Bits around the bungalows may well be NWLDC whilst highways would be LCC.

      I'm not saying that is definitely the answer but it is, at least, possible. I'll check it out next time I'm in the Council Offices.

    2. Thank you. It's the area on the estate further up from the bungalows. The grass play area gets mowed but the verge next to it doesn't.
