Parks, countryside, trees and play areas

Council-owned 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.

If you spot an issue on council-owned land which you cannot resolve yourself as part of The Deal, report it to us. Issues include:

  • Uncut grass
  • Broken glass or spillage
  • Litter
  • Fly tipping
  • Trees, hedges and bushes - dead trees, fallen trees and roots causing damage to surrounding infrastructure, as well as hedges, bushes and trees which overhang onto the highway and pose a risk to motorists and pedestrians
  • Graffiti
  • Dog fouling
  • Overgrown vegetation
  • Damaged or broken public toilets
  • Uncontrolled animals
  • Damaged, broken or missing play equipment.
