On Tuesday 3rd September 2019, East Suffolk Council (Cabinet) discussed grass cutting and the use of herbicides across the District. Environmental factors, and frequency of cutting were considered.
They voted to implement pilot schemes for Southwold and Saxmundham. The Town Councils will consult residents and stakeholders as to areas that are preferred to be cut and sprayed with herbicide less than they are at present.
The trial will run for about a year with a view to rolling it out across the district (including Wrentham) if successful. You can view the Agenda and information documents on the East Suffolk website.
