Maintaining our services to you: this year's grass cutting season is underway!


17/03/2020

We are working hard to maintain our services to you at this time and we have started our annual grass cutting programme in our neighbourhoods.

David Wrigley, Head of Neighbourhood Care said: "It’s important that we continue to deliver as many services as possible to our customers during this time and looking after the green areas of our neighbourhoods is very important to us. You’ll still see our staff working in communal and outdoor areas and please be assured that they have been provided with the necessary equipment and advice to ensure they do this safely without risk of coronavirus to you or them.

“Already this year our team has been busy hedge cutting, pruning, planting and looking after the borders to make sure our communities look colourful and smart this summer. Now the weather is getting better, we'll be maintaining the grass in communal areas to keep it neat and tidy and help make our neighbourhoods great places to live."

When we cut grass
Our team aims to cut grass in communal areas in our neighbourhoods every two weeks from April-October.

Where we cut grass
We cut grass on land we own outside the boundary of your home. We don't collect the cuttings but they will be blown away from your property and footpaths will be swept clear of any grass after every cut.

Grass cutting in your neighbourhood
Find out when our team will be cutting grass in your neighbourhood on our schedule on our grass cutting page. We do our best to keep to this schedule but unfortunately we can’t cut grass when the weather and ground conditions are wet.

Coronavirus
If coronavirus has an impact on our grass cutting schedule we will update the grass cutting page on our website, so please keep a check on this and on our social media accounts on Twitter and Facebook .
