The number of outstanding jobs is a 190% increase on this time last year.

103 new jobs were added between the 21st and 25th of November, with 61 completed.

Council says wet weather is an ongoing hurdle in completing requests, and it hopes to “significantly reduce the number of outstanding jobs over the coming months” as weather improves.
