Grounds maintenance – grass cutting, shrub beds and hedges
The Council is responsible for grounds maintenance of highway verges, and its parks and open spaces.
Most of our work is cyclic with a concentration of grass cutting during the warmer months of the year and cutting back hedges and shrubs during the winter months. We also deal with weed growth and removal litter from Council land.
Grass in different areas within the district can be cut to different frequencies depending on agreements in place with our Parish and Town Councils. These agreements are set up under ‘Localism’ and more information can be found on our website pages for Street Scene services
