Service updates due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Grass cutting

All highway verges, and parks and open spaces are now programmed to be cut at their normal frequency. However, in order to comply with guidance from Public Health England and the control measures arising from the necessary risk assessments, these rounds may take longer.

Park waste and dog bins

Last updated on 6 November 2020

Parks and open spaces, including play parks will remain open so that exercise and socially distanced recreation can take place. As usage may be busy in these areas, please socially distance at all times and remember to only visit in your household bubble or with only one other person from outside of your household. Please be mindful that in light of this we are asking residents and visitors to be responsible and take their litter home with them. Routine park inspections are being carried out.
