I have received quite a lot of calls about overgrown weeds on the pavements and in gutters. It has been widespread across the ward, particularly in the Seaforth Drive, Briscoe Drive area. There has been an issue about the type of weed killer the contractor is now allowed to use due to a recent european directive. That is still being addressed. Also another contention was that after the last weedkilling operation we had a lot of rain which does not help the process.
I have spoken with the contractor and have been told that a weedkilling operation will begin today and run for the next day or two throughout the ward. Please contact us if you have any issues regarding weeds or weedkilling.
