Grass Cutting 2018

The current grass cutting programme is based on 9 cuts throughout the year on a 4 weekly cycle. Recent weather conditions have provided the perfect growing environment for grass and other vegetation which has resulted in some areas looking overgrown already.

In addition to this, areas with wild flowers or planted bulbs are left for a period of time to encourage biodiversity, which prevents cutting.

In response to this year’s wet and warm spring, we have requested that our contractor provides extra resources, at the Council’s expense.

The 4th cut of the season is now underway and residents will notice some improvement in the situation shortly. In addition we are looking at options for changing the programme for 2019 in an attempt to prevent a reoccurrence of this year’s situation.
