Update on our grass cutting services


20/05/2020

From Wednesday 20 May we restarted our grass cutting service. Thanks to you all for hanging in there while we had to postpone our service due to coronavirus.

We know some of our areas are looking overgrown and a bit unloved at the moment. We take pride in keeping our neighbourhoods neat and tidy, and we know you do too, so please bear with us. We have significant amounts of open spaces to tend to but our team of brilliant staff are back mowing again and we will get to them as soon as we can.

We will be out in your neighbourhoods over the next three weeks completing our first cut of grass. All our staff have been provided with the necessary equipment and safety advice to ensure they do this without risk to you or them and are complying with government guidance on social distancing at work so if you can please keep your distance from them if you see them working.

Our grass cutting schedule shows you when our team will be cutting the grass near you. If your area is not on the schedule, this means we have already been.

When the lockdown was announced by the government we had to stop our grass cutting service to help make sure that we could operate more essential services for our customers. Our grounds maintenance team was redeployed to help to get unoccupied properties ready for people who desperately needed them and to clear rubbish and fly tipping from our neighbourhoods to protect everyone’s health and safety,

We’re making grass cutting and clearing grass cuttings from footpaths our priority for now and our neighbourhoods should look as neat as possible after the first cut of longer grass.

We will undertake hedge cutting and other jobs later in the season – we’ll share details of this soon.

We’ll be reviewing our grass cutting service again in early June and we’ll keep you updated on any changes.
