Under new proposals from the government, people who fail to control Japanese Knotweed or other similar non-native invasive plants, can be fined. The fines can be up to £2500 for an individual or £20,000 for a company that fails to take action against plants such as Giant Hogweed and Himalayam Balsam.

Snow Clearance 800

As we are now at the end of the Winter Maintenance season we can look back at a winter where we have completed around 1500 site gritting visits during these past few winter months.

Prior to the work this area had been a rather untidy play area that was not safe to use.  We removed a “wetpour” surfacing layer that was crumbling and also took out the base hardcore underneath.  New topsoil was provided and levelled before laying […]

As is always the case at this time of the year this brought down a few weaker branches on trees and caused some damage to wooden fences. On occasions there is some damage to older panels in fences. However, it is generally due to posts that […]
