The Town Council receives many requests during a year for assistance with landscaping and clearing of footpaths.
The responsibility for maintenance of this rests with the landowner, however, we are usually able to react fairly quickly to requests to deal with overgrown shrubbery on public land, particularly if it presents a health and safety risk to our residents and visitors to the area.
We work closely with other organisations such as Warrington Borough Council, Your Housing, The Woodland Trust and other local landowners/ landlords to enhance the local area.
To enable them to carry out this work competently, our Maintenance Team Operatives are trained in the use of handheld landscaping equipment and we have the tractor and flail for larger volume work.
There are some jobs that we cannot do which would involve specialist tree felling or cutting back branches from around a street lamp involving the use of a cherry picker, something we simply don't have.
