  • Thank you for your enquiry. We undertake three highway grass cuts per annum, and this includes strimming around highways infrastructure, which should include the bus stop in question, and the third and final cut of 2023 was undertaken in this area in September. Due to the winter dieback of the nettles, we do not propose any further action but we will monitor the situation, going forward. Thank you for reporting this matter.
