Coronavirus: Grass cutting and weed spraying update
Grass cutting and weed spraying activities continue in the Shropshire Council area.
Shropshire Council’s contractors are continuing to cut the grass on its land in public areas during the coronavirus crisis, and are adhering to Government guidelines. Mower operators are working alone, and as such are not putting themselves or the public at risk. Grounds staff are not able to work from home, and are carrying out their duties safely, so as to maintain grass levels to an acceptable standard, to avoid issues with longer grass later on.
Should the guidelines from the Government change, Shropshire Council and its contractors, working in partnership, will review grounds maintenance operations. Please do not approach grounds staff, and please allow them to work safely during this difficult period.
