The grass verges are a mess and need cutting. Also trimmed around the trees. This problem is not limited to Rolleston but all grass verges in Petts Wood.

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.
However, we have notified the teams to attend this site to perform regular maintenance of grass cutting.
