The Autumn highway verge cutting programme will commence early September and expect it to be completed by mid-October subject to weather conditions, roadworks and/or any road closures.  The contractor (Livertons) will begin cutting in the North of the District and work their way down to the parishes in the South of the District, as scheduled below.   Please be assured that our cleansing staff will be following on behind, as usual, to clear any litter.
