Following lots of complaints from residents and the press release below, I have been chasing for prompt action for Stoke park and can confirm that work has been started. Fountains Road and all roads off have been done and the rest of Stoke Park will follow.As stated below, it take a few days for the weeds to die off.
It is that time of the year again! Ipswich Borough Council's "weed busters" have begun work to control weeds on pavements and footpaths.
The team, which have begun in the north of the town, use quad bikes and foot patrols to get the job done as quickly and effectively as possible. When you consider there are around 400 miles to cover, it is a very big job!
The Council use an environmentally friendly spray which kills the weeds over a 10-day period, so the Council is asking residents to be patient while the weeds wilt. The weather conditions affect the job, too: it might be too wet and windy to spray effectively.
The team work from 6am to 6pm Mondays to Saturdays - so they will get to your neighbourhood as soon as they can.
