Grass Cutting

Shilton & Barnacle Parish Council

Grass Cutting

The grass cutting service is underataken by a contractor on behalf of the parish council and the parish council has specified that all public areas should be cut, on average, every two weeks between the months of April – October.

Additional cuts can be arranged if they are required.

The cutting of the grass on public open space within Shilton and Barnacle is the responsibility of the parish council, following an agreement in April 2013 that this responsibility should transfer from Rugby Borough Council. In taking over the service, it was agreed that Rugby would also devolve funding to the parish council equivalent to the costs that it had previously incurred in mowing the public areas within the two villages.

Devolving this responsibility has enabled the parish council to specify the frequency and quality of the grass cutting undertaken, and provides the scope for there to be enhancements to the standards of service previously received. The additional cost of any enhancement is paid for out of the parish council’s own budget.

If you have any comments or complaints about grass cutting within the parish, please contact the parish council clerk.
