The grass is currently being cut by a team of two working reduced hours and therefore the ‘cut off points’ for the end of the day may vary slightly from the service we provided before the pandemic, the areas will be cut in line with their schedule before they move on to the next area. The grass cutting takes place dependant on the weather conditions, which may also cause a couple of days delay and is assessed daily in case any other core roles for the Council take priority.
The team are currently finishing up their schedule in Oakhurst, moving on to Abbey Meads on Monday 11th May, Haydon Wick, Moredon, Haydon End, Mouldon Hill and finishing up the schedule in Oakhurst (this area will be defined at the beginning of the week, so we can delete the areas before or move them to the end of the list). The schedule could take approx. 6 weeks to complete. Please note that the grass is being cut by ride on mowers and at the present time there is no strimming or blowing.
The larger open spaces and play areas are cut by a Contractor fortnightly, again subject to weather conditions.
