Verge cutting to increase after £50,000 boost

First published in New Forest News

DORSET County Council is gearing up to keep roadside verges in top condition after a mild and wet spring caused rapid growth.

The council’s Cabinet has agreed to provide an extra £50,000 to increase the number of times the grass is cut.

Usually, in towns, verges are cut six times a year between March and November and in rural areas they are cut twice, between April and October.

However, the wet and mild summers have encouraged more plant growth.
