  • Thank you for your report. We apologise for the length of grass at present. Due to the rapid grass growth so far this year, our Parks Management and Grounds Maintenance Service Provider, idverde, is behind schedule on their grass cutting programme. A recovery plan is currently in place which includes securing additional resources and replacement machinery with a view to having any outstanding areas attended to shortly

  • Still nothing has been done since your previous response two weeks ago, to cut the grass or trim the bushes on the green space adjacent to Bodmin Close, Gilmans Road, and the green space outside the Bromley Indoor Bowls Club.

  • Further works are necessary to resolve the issue and have been scheduled for action.

  • Grass was cut on the green space (not very well) between Gilmsns Road & Bodmin Close over a week ago. However only part of the job was done. The bushes on Gilmans Road have not been trimmed back, nor has the grass on the green space outside the Bromley indoor Bowls Club on Bodmin close been cut. There are also tree branches completely overhanging the public footpath on Bodmin Close, so pedestrians have to walk on the road. The whole green space area is starting to look like an eyesore, and it is clearly evident that the contractors who are supposed to maintain these spaces could not care less and do as little and as quickly as possible. It is also evident that there is no quality control being conducted to ensure the jobs are done properly. The pictures speak for themselves.

Please note that if the location you wish to mark is already occupied by a pin, you can hide the map pins via the button in the bottom left or you can click a nearby free section of the map to drop your green reporting pin so that all other yellow pins indicating existing reports disappear, you can then click and drag your green pin to the correct location and continue submitting your report.
