Grass left uncut under and around trees to south of green

Reported via mobile in the Grass needs cutting category anonymously at 20:01, Saturday 24 September 2022

Sent to Bromley Council less than a minute later

The maintenance team do not cut the grass around the trees to the south east of the green in Abinger Close outside numbers 16, 15,14 and 13. There are also Holly saplings and various branches and debris, which are dangerous to children and pets. This looks very messy makes the area unusable and potentially harbours ticks, which could lead to limes disease. The path is also mossy and slippers when wet. Please cut all the grass and clear the area and clear the path. Many thanks This is much appreciated and will enhance the area.

  • The Council has amended its procedure in regard to cutting grass in proximity to trees. This is to protect the trees from grass gutting equipment which has been a persistent cause of damage greatly impacting the health of trees around the borough. Any issues surrounding proliferation of invasive species, litter and weeds will still be addressed under the wider maintenance responsibility.

  • The path is still mossy, slippery and overhanging trees are dangerous. There is still a cluster of spiky Holly branches at the base of the tree. Weeds, long grass and uneven ground around the trees are unsightly and can harbour ticks.
