New weed treatment programme to start this month

A new programme for clearing weeds from roads and pavements in the St Albans District will start this month – and residents can keep an eye on the results.

People can check on a new webpage what streets are due to be treated and when the work is due to go ahead.

It will take around four weeks for the weeds to perish after being sprayed and they will then be removed by street cleaners.

The programme is being undertaken by St Albans City and District Council to improve the look of neighbourhoods particularly during the growth seasons of spring and summer.
