Annual summer clearance

If you wish to raise an issue regarding clearance (excluding arable crops), you can check to see if the path is already on the schedule for summer clearance by selecting the route from the map.

Paths with scheduled annual clearance will be denoted with green triangles:

Green arrows signifying a path is scheduled for annual clearance

This means that work has already been identified for vegetation clearance in the next few weeks and it isn’t necessary to add a further issue. You should continue to raise an issue for overgrowth on any paths that haven’t already been listed on the schedule.
