Ryedale District Council

Parks and open spaces

NYCCThe Council cuts grass on our own property and under contract to some parish councils. We do not cut grass along the roads or footpaths throughout the District. A private contractor under contract to North Yorkshire County Council provides this service.

Parks and play areas in Ryedale are maintained by local community groups. We maintain the shrubs, beds and borders on our own gardens and property but we do not provide a maintenance service for other organisations or individuals. Please contact your local Parish Council to obtain contact details.

Please email us or telephone 01653 600666 for enquiries about grass cutting and ground maintenance in parks, open spaces and grass verges.
