Halton Council is having to cut the grass in the borough less often than before due to the continuing effect of budget cuts.

Over the last few months you may have noticed there has been less grass cutting taking place on areas of land such as grass verges.

The Council had to find savings of £16 million for 2016-17 due to reductions in funding from the Government. This means the Council is forced to make tough decisions in order to make savings while also trying to protect services.
