Out-of-hours services in Royal Borough to be extended

A continuation of out-of-hours services run by the Royal Borough council has been approved.

Services dealing with environmental issues such as tree felling, dangerous structures and late night noise was dealt with by council officers in a six-month out-of-hours trial which began in January.

Councillors agreed the continuation of the scheme at the cabinet's monthly meeting on Thursday.

Cllr Geoff Hill (Con, Oldfield), cabinet member for environmental services said: "The scheme was a success and we were very happy with the response, but we want to extend these services.

"We are now in the process of asking members where they would like services to be extended to out-of-hours and we hope to present a report to cabinet in July."

A budget of £60,600 has been put forward for the scheme which could see the Royal Borough working with neighbouring authorities to deliver additional out of hour services.

The meeting took place at Maidenhead Town Hall.
