Council to use ‘Urban Grazing’ to save on funds



Council bosses have taken to new measure in bid to save up to £150,000 a year maintaining unused and some public grass areas in the county.

Bosses will use what is know as “Urban Grazing” to keep grass cut in Rhyl, Prestatyn and Rhuddlan.  Hundreds of cattle such as sheep, cows and donkey’s will be brought into the towns on a monthly basis during the Spring and Summer seasons.

Council agricultural spokeswoman Daisy Fallpoor said “Urban Grazing has been used to much success in cities and town all over the country, it will be at a great benefit to local farmers and to the council during these difficult times, we would be foolish not to proceed with this environment saving and cost cutting idea”.

Grass areas identified as possible grazing plots are:

  • St Margaret’s Drive, Rhyl
  • Tynewydd Road, Rhyl
  • East End promenade in Rhyl
  • Victoria Road, Prestatyn
  • Ffordd Isa, Prestatyn
  • Station Road, Prestatyn
  • Rhyl Road, Rhuddlan
  • Kerfoot Avenue, Rhuddlan

The grazing could also be used in public fields, cemeteries and school fields in the near future. The 1st graze with being in April 2017.

APRIL FOOLS !! It wouldn’t be a bad idea to be honest, might cause a bit of chaos on the roads though.

Clues to the fool:

Daisy Fallpoor is an anagram of April Fools Day

Daisy says “we would be FOOLISH not to proceed”

And the FIRST grave is APRIL 2017

Hope you liked it 🙂
