 Grounds maintenance 

Grass cutting: We are now back on track with grass cutting. Please allow up to four weeks between cuts, subject to weather conditions. Hedge cutting: Our hedge teams are now also operational, as bird-nesting season comes to an end. We cut hedges twice annually and expect all hedges to have been tended to throughout the summer months. If you are aware of a hedge that is preventing a right of way or a cause for concern, please let us know.

 Parking management

Parking schemes controlled by CPM UK Car Park Management resumed on 25 May. Please ensure you display permits as usual when parking in these areas. We are also taking action to clear any vehicles abandoned on Curo land.   

 Cleaning communal areas

Cleaning will include ‘touch points’ such as door handles and taps and continues in teams of one for the time-being.

 Rubbish collections

Note that local authorities are no longer entering buildings with bin rooms to collect. We will ensure affected blocks have waste put out by us for collection. We will continue with our normal bulk waste and fly-tipping rounds as long as we're able to access waste disposal centres. If any of our residents in blocks of flats, where we have communal refuse facilities, have overflows of waste or recycling please contact our Customer Contact Team, so we can take action to resolve the issue quickly.

Many local authorities have now scrapped green waste collections and will be reducing recycling collections from weekly to fortnightly on the same day they collect general waste. For updates about collections in your neighbourhood, please click the links below:
