West Swindon Parish Council

The Parish Council's grounds team works all year round. Over the Autumn and Winter months 2020 to 2021, the team stops grass cutting and moves on to giving shrubs and hedges on public land an annual cut. This work takes approximately six months. The team will also respond to complaints where there are public access issues.

The team focus on one area at a time and generally the routes are as follows:

October to November Sparcells, Nine Elms, Grange Park, Peatmoor and Middleleaze

December to January Ramleaze, Shaw, Eastleaze and Westlea

February to March Toothill and Freshbrook

We continue to do what we can to promote a clean, green and well cared for environment. As the Parish Council continues with a single annual cut, the result of doing it infrequently means the change in the environment can be visually dramatic. However, many neighbourhoods will have seen that the hard pruning taken place over the last two years, has resulted in stronger and healthier vigorous regrowth. Please be aware that the aim is to bring the green environment across West back into a more manageable state and to contribute to well maintained local spaces.

Please be aware that Swindon Borough Council is responsible for trees and any high level tree maintenance.

Once the weather warms up, the team refocus their work. During the Spring and Summer months, the team tackles project work in response to community requests for service and complaints. This includes removing brambles, clearing pathways and overhanging shrubs/branches. The team is very careful to ensure that it does not disrupt nesting birds. Checks are undertaken before any work is begun.
