Verge Maintenance

The Parish Council has entered into a collaboration arrangement with the neighbouring parishes of Thurnby and Bushby, Scraptoft and Stoughton and from April 2015 grass cutting of verges and the like are undertaken by a contractor recommended by the consortium and approved by each of the parishes. Leicestershire County Council provides financial support.

Queries should be sent by email to the Clerk to the Parish Council: clerk@houghtononthehillpc.org.uk
