Town Council to take on Roadside Grass Cuts

Help is on its way! 

The Town Council has ordered a full cut of the roadside grass across Barnstaple, and work is due to start today (29th July).

This interim measure follows the County Council's agreement in principle to to transfer responsibility for verge maintenance in Barnstaple to the Town Council from April 2016 with support funding.

Major thanks to town councillors for their persistence and determination in bringing DCC to the negotiating table after eight months of sustained campaigning. We should soon be able to see over the long grass! This is just the start - still some way to go in reaching a detailed agreement, and in sorting out the shrub beds and kerbside weeds, but this is a big step forward. With the help of businesses, community groups, and individual residents we're on the way back to ‪a beautiful Barnstaple.
