A REVIEW of the council's grass-cutting service is underway, two-and-a-half years after a new scheme was introduced.

Wokingham Borough Council (WBC)'s Overview and Scrutiny Management Committee is undertaking a review of the service, which was started in April 2016 to provide a more flexible approach to grass-cutting which responded to local needs and priorities.

However, the council has received a number of complaints regarding the quality and effectiveness of the service, which has led to a review.

Residents, town councils and parish councils are being asked to provide their views on the frequency and quality of grass cutting across the borough, which includes the timeliness and frequency of cuts, the quality of the work, disposal of grass cuttings, impact of wildflower areas, information on the Council’s website, complaints handling or any other issues.

Once the committee has received enough evidence from residents, witness sessions will be held in the autumn.

To contribute your feedback, write to WBC's Scrutiny Officer Neil Carr at neil.carr@wokingham.gov.uk or by post at Democratic Services, Wokingham Borough Council, Shute End, Wokingham, RG40 1WH.
