Grass Cutting Confusion with the District Council

This year, Oxhill Parish Council have been looking to manage certain areas of the village for Biodiversity in order to improve the wildlife potential of the village. As part of this process, they have been liaising with myself at the District Council to see how this can work with the mowing arrangements we have in place across the District.

Unfortunately there has been some confusion over what was required, and who would be maintaining the areas within the village, which resulted in us removing all of Oxhill from our maintenance arrangements, rather than just those areas being managed for Biodiversity. This has resulted in the village not receiving the maintenance it should have done, and on behalf of the District Council I would like to apologise for the impact this may have had.

The Parish Council have worked closely with me to resolve this error, and we have now agreed arrangements for the future that should avoid any further problems, along with remedial works that should have been carried out by the time you read this.

Apologies once again, and I hope that the new Biodiversity areas will develop into strong features for the village, and everyone will see the benefit that they will bring to the village in terms of plant and animal life.
