Green spaces and vegetation

Our green spaces include parks, countryside, play areas, playing fields and bowling greens. We work to keep these areas clean and tidy for your use and enjoyment, supported by our environmental contractor Serco.

Serco also helps us with the removal of litter and the maintenance of public grounds.
