AMENITY GRASS CUTTING

As from April 2017 Lincolnshire County Council will not be cutting amenity grass but will pass the responsibility and cost on to Parish Councils.

After discussion at the Parish Meeting held on the 9th January the cost of maintaining amenity areas would mean increasing the Parish precept by 10%. This was felt not to be acceptable by all Councillors.

In addition, permission has not been given to the Parish Council by the Highways Authority to cut County Council grass areas, as required by the 1980 Highway Act. As a result the decision was taken not to cut County Council grass areas during 2017/18.

Should you wish to discuss the matter further, please contact the Clerk at gthalepcclerk@aol.co.uk.
