Japanese Knotweed removal

  1. What the project will do

    This grant means we can fully update our record of public places where there is Japanese Knotweed. We will then decide which are the highest priority and employ a specialist contractor to do work to control or kill it with herbicide treatments.

    As part of the contract we'll get guarantees of the work, and make sure the treatment will continue until the plants have been controlled or eradicated.

    Usually the herbicide treatment needs to be done for a period of three years, and this funding will pay for it all.

    The grant will also pay for training our staff so that they treat low priority areas. These trained staff will then be able to treat infestations when the contract has ended.
