The cutting of grass verges in Exeter will now be carried out four times a year instead of just twice, Exeter City Council has revealed.
The authority was going to withdraw from cutting roadside verges on behalf of Devon County Council beause plans to reduce the frequency from its current frequency of six times a year to just twice would be “unrealistic and unworkable”.
However, following negotiations between the two authorities, extra funding has been made available by Devon County Council – enough to pay for four cuts a year, wich is a reduction on the former six cuts a year.
