Those overgrown verges…

Our local County Councillor, Liz Leffman, spoke at the Parish Council meeting to explain why the County Council is no longer routinely cutting road verges as often during their growing season. It is because these verges are a haven for wildlife, so leaving them uncut for most of the summer is an important element in their nature conservation work.

However, if you know of a verge where uncut foliage is obstructing a sign, or your view of traffic at a junction, you can report that problem via ‘Fix my Street’ It is very helpful if you can include a photograph of the obstruction. This same website can also be used to report potholes and other highways problems which you would like the County Council to resolve.
