Council reassures on temporary effect of weedkiller

Despite budget cuts, the council works hard to maintain cemeteries and to respect the areas. We have selected to use weedkiller as strimming grass and weeds can damage memorial stones and tributes set out by families for their loved ones.

While we were carrying out this work in Barone Road Cemetery, Bute, a broken piece of equipment meant that more ground was sprayed than intended.

We apologise for this but can reassure people that this is temporary as the weedkiller we use is biodegradable which means that it should start to repair in four to six weeks.

The equipment has been rectified and checks are in place for the future.
