Question

Please can you tell me:

1) How often the council cuts grass verges, and how much this costs.

2) Has the council, in the last five years, reduced or increased the number of times it cuts its grass verges.

3) If there has been a change, please explain why. If the change has been to save money, please state how much has been saved.

Answer

1) How often the council cuts grass verges, and how much this costs. Our contract is output based and therefore we do not stipulate how often it is cut.  The Council does not pay for individual tasks such as grass cutting but pays for maintaining types of area.  If you would like to identify an area(s) in question we can supply a cost for maintaining that area(s)

2) Has the council, in the last five years, reduced or increased the number of times it cuts its grass verges. No

3) If there has been a change, please explain why. If the change has been to save money, please state how much has been saved. N/A
