Not Quite ‘Cutting’ The Mustard

It’s that time of year again, when you will see the mowers out cutting the grass verges. This service was taken back ‘in house’ by RDC last year following the setting up of the Green Gateway Trading Company and should give the Council and ultimately residents a better service.

I’ve had several complaints from residents already that the recent grass cutting isn’t up to much this year though with the grass looking like it’s been cut in a very patchy manner. I’ve emailed the Assistant Director and Portfolio to inform them of the quality which doesn’t quite cut the mustard with residents!

  • Elm Drive looking more than a bit ‘clumpy’ , assume they are getting around to it….. Please to note that the winter damage from vehicles driving over the grass verges and other road side green areas at that location not as bad as previous years. Normally need to do re-seeding at this time of year, minimum replanting needed this time thank goodness.
