Community Weeding Scheme

You can nurture local biodiversity by taking a selective approach to weeding your street’s pavements.

How we monitor your street’s weeding

The council regularly monitors the environmental quality of all streets in the borough.

If we notice that plants are creating potential trip hazards, or could cause damage, then we’ll get in touch to discuss how to remove them and to offer support as appropriate.

If the weeds remain after an agreed time period then, as a last resort, your road may be removed from scheme and put back on the regular weeding schedule.
