Grasscutting and bedding plant provision FAQs

Areas not affected by the changes

The following key civic spaces, high amenity areas and sport pitches will see grasscutting maintenance unchanged.  If an area is not on this list and is maintained by us, it will either be deemed a general amenity grass area and will now be cut once approximately every 20 working days (or less if steeply sloping ground) or will become a wildflower area. We have information on changes to bedding plant provision.
