Weed treatment is carried out 3 times a year on council-owned footpaths across the borough.
Weed treatment is extremely weather dependent. When weather is particularly bad (wet and windy weather), this will cause delays.
It takes 7 to 10 days for weeds to die back once treated.
Due to recent weather conditions of regular showers and windy days we expect there to be delays for the treatment during Summer.
Knapsacking: Weed spraying that is carried out manually, where a ride-on machine cannot reach tight small areas and in between obstacles.
Our officers carry out inspections across the borough. However, if you wish to report weeds, you can do this online.
