The Town Council is responsible for all the grasscutting of the public areas in Stokesley. These include those areas of public land within the parish that are owned by North Yorkshire Council (NYC). NYC contribute some of the costs of cutting their areas, but the Town Council has accepted to bear the additional costs of more frequent cuts than historically HDC / NYCC were prepared to fund. Co-ordinating the grasscutting contract by the Town Council means that a uniform standard of grasscutting applies to all areas of public land in Stokesley irrespective of ownership.
The grasscutting contract is put out to public tender and is awarded in accordance with our procedures.
