  • Molesey Hurst
  • Summer Road and the outfields for the sports pitches (eg cricket/football areas)

Going forward we will provide updates at the end of each working week.

Thank you for your support and understanding.


24 June update

This week we have been concentrating on cutting overgrown grassed verges in various locations in the borough.

We are currently cutting in Claygate and are planning to be in the Dittons and Hampton Court area at the beginning of next week and in the Molesey area towards the end of next week. 

In terms of open spaces, we have cut the grass on the Tilt in Cobham today and will continue cutting in the Cobham area tomorrow.
 

We are still slightly behind schedule but making good progress to catch up. Weather permitting, we should get closer to our usual schedule in early July and resume a normal service by the end of July. Thank you for your patience.


21 June update 

To recap on the situation. We work with our contractor to cut the grass in our many greens spaces and parks, our cemeteries and the borough’s road verges.

This June, the normally great service has been interrupted and hampered by the intense growing conditions, which means we are working hard to catch up. Our cemeteries in particular are causing the most upset among our residents, understandably.

However, through the following measures we are catching up:

  •  An extra team has been deployed to assist our core crew
  • We are prioritising areas such as our cemeteries.

We will regularly update this web page with information on our cutting programme and ask that you check this page for updates rather than reporting issues directly.

We know there is catch up work needed and ask for your patience while we ensure that our green spaces and cemeteries maintained to the standards we all expect.

Thank you.
