Councillor Martin Plackett requested information from Broxtowe Borough Council’s Environment team on when the next grass verge cut will take place:
Dear Cllr Plackett
The next cut for the highway verges will commence next week ( W.C. 23/5/16)
As you are aware the verges are now experiencing their peak growing season – dandelions have flowered and will over the next 4/6 weeks continue to grow rapidly – warm weather and water.
The cutting regime will manage this peak and it is inevitable given restricted resources that the verges will look ragged for a short period.
