Grass cutting and grounds maintenance works

On 1st May 2020, we will begin our annual grounds maintenance contract. It has been delayed to allow us to ensure that we can carry out this work safely; protecting our residents, staff and the wider public.
Our contractors will start with litter picking and weed spraying, followed by grass cutting.
We will not be working on any of our sheltered housing or extra care schemes for the time being. This is to offer an additional level of protection for our more vulnerable residents. When we do restart works at these schemes, we will make sure that the Scheme Managers give all our residents plenty of notice.
You will see our contractors on site working as normal. In most cases they will not be wearing any additional protective equipment, such as masks, as they will not be working within two meters of any of our residents. They will also be following all other Government guidance around good hygiene and social distancing.
We are confident that we are able to safely resume certain grounds maintenance services while complying with social distancing rules. Our staff will be working with our contractors closely to ensure that these works are undertaken in accordance with all Government guidance.
