MyAccount services temporarily unavailable
Due to scheduled maintenance, our MyAccount service will be unavailable today from 5pm to 8pm. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. If you need to contact our Customer Services team in this time, please do so by calling 0345 8 506 506.

We will not prune or fell a tree owned or managed by the Council to remove or reduce leaf fall. We will also not remove fallen leaves from private property.


Customer Advice:

  • The loss of leaves from trees in the autumn is part of the natural cycle and cannot be avoided by pruning.
  • For roads, streets or the highway extra teams are working in the autumn to clear fallen leaves.
  • In parks and greenspaces, paths or other areas of hard standing are regularly cleared of fallen leaves, but leaves on grass / shrub beds are generally left until the majority of leaves have fallen before they are removed (unless leaving them would damage the grass in which case the accumulated leaves would be removed sooner).

Please also note that we don't clear litter on private land (in the case that the litter is on private land, you will need to contact the landowner for it to be cleared).

However, details of the litter can be passed on to our enforcement team to be investigated.


Before you start, you will need to tell us:

  • Where the problem is (please try to be specific with the answer you give, for example: outside No.10 Church Road rather than just Church Road.
