Grounds maintenance charge

All our housing tenants pay towards the cost of grounds maintenance. The service charge covers the cost of keeping hedges, trees, grass and borders trimmed and tidy. It also covers keeping communal areas clear of weeds and moss, etc.

The cost is spread equally across all tenants. This means people living in areas where there’s a lot of land to keep in order aren’t charged an unfair amount.

If you wish to report an overgrown grass, shrubs or trees on council land, please use our online tree, hedge or grass problem form.
