Highways Weed Control

Printer-friendly page
Roadside weedsIn April 2018 the Council took on responsibility for managing weeds across the District on behalf of Hertfordshire County Council. 
This includes directly managing the weed spraying programme, which has previously been undertaken by Hertfordshire County Council.

This arrangement will improve management of weeds across the District and the treatment frequency has be increased to three per year where necessary.

St Albans City & District Council will not be treating weeds from designated high-speed routes (such as the A414).
The work will be carried out by the Councils ground maintenance contractor John O’Conner GM Ltd working in partnership with a specialist weed treatment company Complete Weed Control Ltd.

In 2019 weed treatment will be carried out in the following areas during April, July and September/October.
