Changes to grass cutting operations

The Council agreed that the grass cutting budget would be reduced for 2015/16. In order to achieve this we have changed the frequency of some of our operations:

  • Ceased cutting some areas to encourage Bio-diversity
  • Ceased maintaining banking’s that are difficult to cut.
    • (In recent years we have had some near misses on such steep banking’s, especially during wet weather.)
  • These areas always have a maintained edge around paths and are maintained litter free.
