Environmental improvements

Hixon Parish Council spends over £7,500 each year on mowing, strimming and weed-killing public open spaces and maintaining planting beds. The Council always aims to do more year-on-year if finances allow.

The next major project is to soften the ‘look’ around the mini island at the junction of Church Lane/Smithy Lane/Martins Way and Sycamore Drive. This project will include more planters adjacent to road name signs and cut back vegetation on the open space next to the village Christmas tree.
