Back to all reports

No grass cutting taken place in Northgate this year. It is now May. Average grass height 6-9 inches. It's an eyesore. Never seen it so bad. Area of Barnfield Rd,Woolborough Rd,Kilnmead and Woodfield Rd. Notice that adjacent West Green and College Rd into town were done quite a while ago

  • It seems that the cutting teams have been told to avoid any areas with "flowers" naturalised in the grass. Very right and sensible for crocuses and daffodils etc. However now that dandelions (weeds) are endemic in virtually every verge and grass area, they now have the prerogative for cutting virtually nothing. Hope that is reflected in the contract negotiations.

    State changed to: Fixed
