Hedges are trimmed between 1 August and 28 February, they are done in a logical order working around the city. Due to the Wildlife and Countryside act 1981 we are not legally allowed to trim hedge from March to August. Hedges will not be moved further up the schedule as a result of service requests raised.
These are planted twice a year. This is usually between -
- May and June
- October and November
We carry out work on our flower beds three times a year.

Parking on verges
Please help us keep verges tidy and respect the safety of other highway users by finding somewhere else to park. You could be prosecuted for causing damage to a verge.
If you park on a verge where there are double yellow lines you may receive a parking ticket.
It is an offence to drive along the footway.
To report somebody parking or driving on a verge please contact 01482 300 300 and speak to the Parking Department.
We will investigate all reports and aim to resolve the matter within ten working days.
