Councils to fund additional grass verge cutting

Grass Verge (June 2015)As reported in the local press recently, Bicester Town Council and Cherwell District Council have agreed to find an extra £12,000 each to finance two additional cuts of Bicester’s grass verges, providing a total of four cuts this year (click here and here for full reports).

This follows widespread complaints after Oxfordshire County Council, which is responsible for the maintenance of grass verges on public highways, reduced cutting from fives times a year to only two in response to funding reductions.
