Weed management on pavements and walkways

We the undersigned petition Brighton & Hove Council to effectively manage the increasing issue of weeds growing from the pavements and walkways causing damage to the pavements that will inadvertently cost the taxpayer and divert future funds for other projects. The weeds are dangerous in paces causing trip hazards and they are detrimental to the aesthetics of our city.

We acknowledge the council policy to not use chemical weed killers but that doesn’t mean they should not be removed and left to take over pavements and walkways. The weeds need to be manually removed or by another means suitable and clear walkways maintained. It’s clear funding is not being used for regular refuse/recycling collection, street cleaning, park or green space maintenance or that of the roads and pavements so I beg to question where local tax payers money is going when other councils seem to manage all the above issues to a far better degree.
