Mowing and long grass update


With one of the wettest Octobers on record, and most of our parks and reserves located on low-lying land, it has been difficult to keep on top of the grass growth in many of our open spaces and reserves. 

The wet conditions make it unsafe to move the machinery through grounds without causing significant damage to the land, and due to the size of our parklands and roadsides, hand mowing is not an option.    

With more than 2,500 parks, reserves and roadsides across Casey, we use three different contractors to maintain these open spaces, which means they are maintained on different service schedules. 

The majority of parks are now on a three-week schedule and the main road reserves on a five-week schedule.  Parks that are missed in the schedule are prioritised to be cut in the next mowing cycle.  

We apologise for the inconvenience the delays in mowing may cause and appreciate our community's patience.
