Osbaldwick Councillor Mark Warters has obtained a copy of the schedules used to check on the progress being made with weed control spraying in York this summer.
They reveal that only a small proportion of roads were checked by local officials. A substantial payment has been made to the contractors based on this evidence.
Surprisingly those that were checked apparently showed signs of weed “die back”. This contrasts with some of the photographic evidence accumulated by local residents.
The list confirms that many streets and surrounding areas were not included on the spraying lists.
The main issue now relates to how next years weed control programme will be managed.
