Important Information

Assisted Garden Maintenance has been suspended until further notice. The suspension of the service will ensure that our resources are prioritised towards the delivery of essential services such as cleansing and our crematoria.

In addition, no new applications for the service will be processed at this time.

If any existing service user is able to cut their grass, or has someone who can assist, doing so as regularly as possible will help to shred any clippings and minimise the amount of waste produced. Otherwise, the advice is to please compost clippings wherever possible or if you are unable to compost from home, please store your garden waste in a corner of your garden until the service resumes.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and are grateful to the patience of householders during this challenging time.
