Verge Maintenance

Northamptonshire County Council is responsible for the maintenance of verges outside the 30 mph zone.

Within the 30 mph zone the Parish Council undertakes the maintenance on behalf of the County Council and employs a contractor, currently Creatifica Associates Ltd, to cut the verges 12 times a year, compared to the 3 cuts the County Council offers.

Volunteers have planted daffodils in the verges and snowdrops under the hedgerows. These are not mowed until 6 weeks after flowering.

The Chelston Rise Estate Management company employ contractors to cut the communal grass in Chelston Rise.
