Surrey County Council (SCC) recently announced that from April 2023, highway verge cutting, weed control and on street parking enforcement management will be taken “back-in-house”.
“Surrey County Council is responsible for highway verge cutting and weed control, as well as on-street parking enforcement. It currently has agreements in place with eight district and borough councils to manage the verges on the county council’s behalf, and all on-street parking enforcement is managed by the districts and boroughs.
From April 2023 the county council will manage both of these county-wide to ensure consistent approaches across Surrey.
The county council aims to promote biodiversity by promoting wildflowering on appropriate highway verges and will continue to trial more sustainable approaches.
Managing parking across the county will ensure a good service is offered throughout the county and offer good value for residents.”
