Grass verges around Petts Wood need cutting. They look like they have been forgotten.

  • Looks like an un kept council. Cut grass left by the wayside. Long grass around base of trees...sorry but not getting the excuss to leave for wild life ...never had this excuse in the past and many large areas still being left untouched. Really? Never had this with Conservative run Borough in the past!?

  • The Council’s approach to grass cutting and tree protection management was reviewed in April 2022. Further to this, our grass cutting teams are under instruction to leave a 0.5m circle around tree bases to create a safe buffer regardless of the size of the tree, to prevent mechanical damage. The uncut buffer zone also provides insects a natural habitat and is based on the Bromley Council biodiversity policy and new wildlife friendly vegetation management approach implemented across Bromley’s verges.

    We have passed your complaint regarding the arisings to the Contract Manager, and a team should attend the area soon to collect this.
