Parks, countryside and play areas

Council green spaces include parks, countryside, play areas, playing fields and bowling greens. We work to keep these areas clean and tidy for your use and enjoyment.

  • Uncut grass
  • Broken glass or spillage
  • Litter
  • Fly tipping
  • Graffiti
  • Dog fouling
  • Overgrown vegetation
  • Damaged or broken public toilets
  • Fallen trees
  • Uncontrolled animals
  • Damaged, broken or missing play equipment
  • Tree maintenance - trees on council owned land including dead trees, fallen trees and roots causing damage to surrounding infrastructure.
