Grounds Maintenance

Who looks after what?

Most estates have a combination of adopted and unadopted roads, footpaths and communal land. Adopted areas are the responsibility of your local authority and are paid for out of Council Tax. Unadopted areas are maintained by Abertay and you contribute to their maintenance through our system of shared charges.

Plans detailing the areas maintained by Abertay Housing Association in your community can be accessed by clicking on the area below.

Timing of works

Some types of maintenance work are seasonal, so unless they present a health and safety risk, we will plan to carry out the work at the most appropriate time of year. You may therefore find that work you have reported is not carried out for some time.

The Association and its Landscaping Contractor, Ground Control, have mutually agreed to terminate the existing Open Space Maintenance contract at the end of October 2021 and we will appoint a new Open Space Maintenance Contractor in time for the new grass cutting season commencing 1 April 2022.

Details of the Winter Tree Maintenance Works for 2020/21 are here. The Association gives consideration to tree works based on priority, whilst giving consideration to residents’ wishes to ensure that costs are generally in line with previous years. The 2020/21 Winter Tree Maintenance works were carried out by Tree Maintenance Scotland. To report works for future programmes, please contact us.
