Although we are scheduled for grass cutting next week, I thought it might be useful to share with you the future scheduled dates and some changes to the frequency for particular areas throughout the ward necessary due to spending reductions announced at the last budget. This was necessary in order for the council to be able to meet its mandatory responsibilities to Adult Social Care, Children’s Services and Education while freezing council tax again this year.
I’m not though at all happy with how the cutting schedule has been going up to now and have asked for a review of the schedule with the new council leader and the cabinet member responsible.
UPDATE 14th May – The Council Leader & Cabinet Member responsible have accepted my complaint as valid and will be looking at improving the cutting schedule within the area. I’ll update when I know more.
