Getting things done - Greater Balgay #dundeewestend

I have had numerous concerns recently about the frequency of grass cutting and maintenance in Balgay Park, Victoria Park and Lochee Park and also the need to attend to overgrown bushes at the Victoria Park boundary with Jedburgh Road.

I took this up with the council's Service Manager - Environment and he has now responded as follows :

"I can confirm that the grass at Victoria Park has now been cut. 

In terms of Lochee Park, to ensure the pitches are kept in a suitable standard for football we always endeavour to cut these weekly, the remainder of the park is cut on a fortnightly basis hence the grass is a bit longer in the non football areas cut rather than being of excessive length.

The hedge in Jedburgh Road is cut annually and is scheduled to commence at the start of next month."
