The grass cutting this year has been started late – this is due to some difficulties with the appointed contractor – The Landscape Group (TLG) – and as a result the grass has reached an unacceptable length in some areas.
TLG have had some staff problems and equipment breakdowns and are pushing to get the backlog caught up. It isn’t acceptable so the penalty clauses in their contract are being invoked.
If you wish to log a complaint then this can be done by calling EHDC on 0300 300 0013 or emailing EHDC on firstname.lastname@example.org and the team will prioritise areas where lines of sight at junctions for example are a particular hazard. Thank you to those who have emailed me directly – these have been forwarded on to the customer services team.
In the meantime TLG have committed to catching up on all areas I the next 8 days (17th June) by working longer into the evenings and weekends.
