WEST Sussex County Council has said its grass cutting programme is “about nine days behind normal schedule” because of the wet weather this spring.

The first urban cut of the year was carried out by contractors in March and the second urban cut is now underway.

Member for highways and transport Pieter Montyn, said: “We have experienced record rainfall for April, which slowed our grass cutting teams while creating ideal growing conditions for grass.

“Our contractor is completing the rounds in our urban areas as quickly and efficiently as possible to get back on track.”
