Grass cutting and weeding

Reported via desktop in the Weeds category anonymously at 16:48, Wednesday 22 May 2024

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later. FixMyStreet ref: 6008007.

The grass in Beaconsfield Road was roughly mowed today the cuttings have been half blown into the road to be washed along by the rain and cover the drains the other Half left on the pavement to become slippery enough to fall over no areas of weeds have been treated in the road gutters for months and have been left to grow out of control no weeds have been cleared from the bases of trees and road signs these also now grow out of control we have a huge area of grass and woodlands called foxes field at the back of Beaconsfield Road plenty of room for flys bees wasps butterflies birds to fly around and multiply so I do not understand why Tory councillors in charge of Bromley council think it is ok to allow the Mottingham area to become untidy and unmanaged in this way, having travelled though Bexley and Greenwich they don’t seem to have the same problem their grass areas are all cut and neatly mowed. With and election looming I’m sure voters will know who best to vote for and it won’t be the Conservative Party

  • Thank you for your enquiry. Arisings produced in the cutting of grass verges across the borough are left in situ on the verges. Grass cuttings act as a natural fertiliser and leaving them in situ also helps Bromley provide a value for money service. Grass cuttings that are across the pavement should be blown back onto the verge, however where any cuttings are particularly significant in volume a one-off removal may be undertaken. A team will be re-attending to blow the arisings back onto the verge.
