Selected large open spaces were already being cut so that people could exercise safely, as were areas along highways that could impede sight lines at junctions and roundabouts.
These works are now safe to be extended to include:
- one mown width along the outside of all highway footpaths
- one mown width along path edges in parks and gardens
- common informal paths to be mown
- strimming around seating and bins.
All work will observe social distancing rules.
