Discussions on grass cutting continue both with Oxfordshire Highways and contractors. Oxfordshire Highways are responsible for the first cut of the year and so far this is incomplete and we are pressing them to finish it. The programme this year has been seriously delayed and the contractor is having difficulty catching up.
The Parish Council will need to make arrangements for the second cut which normally takes place in October. Oxfordshire Highways will retain statutory responsibility for road safety which means that they must cut visibility splays. Where residents notice unsafe areas it is helpful to raise this with Oxfordshire Highways. Some residents have cut the grass in front of their properties and this is much appreciated.
