Grass-cutting will be making a phased return after being suspended to support Covid-19 responses.

Wiltshire Council will reintroduce grass cutting on a wider-scale throughout the county after only small amounts of maintenance continued during the lockdown.

Due to the length of the grass, the first two cuts will result in larger than normal amounts of cuttings being left behind onsite.

The cuts will also take longer than usual due to the length.

Coun Bridget Wayman, Wiltshire Council cabinet member for highways, said “More and more people will be out and about getting their exercise and enjoying Wiltshire once again.

"We have a plan in place to get our green spaces back into tip-top shape as quickly as possible while keeping staff and the public safe.

“We ask people to respect our staff while they carry out their work and we appreciate everyone’s patience while we get our schedule back on track."
