  • There are two weed spraying cycles planned this year. This activity is dependent on localised weather trends such as wind speed etc. so a formal programme is not possible for individual locations. It is important to point out that the chemicals we are permitted to use only kill what is green at time of application and the chemical has no residual effect. This activity is undertaken to try to maintain the structural integrity of the footway / carriageway surface. It is not carried out for aesthetic reasons.
