Cllr Johnnie Wall.

A TRALEE councillor wants the regularity of grass cutting in estates looked at by the local authority.

At the meeting off Tralee Municipal District on Tuesday, Fianna Fáil Cllr. Johnnie Wall was enquiring about the Council’s obligation to cutting grass in the Bruach na hAbhainn estate in Tralee, after he was asked to do so by residents.

In reply, Council Management said the green areas at the Bruach na hAbhainn estate are maintained by Tralee MD.

They said the grass is normally regularly maintained, however, so far in 2022, due to a combination of works demands elsewhere and periods of poor weather, Tralee MD staff have been unable to achieve their normal level of service. The green area was however cut in the recent days by Tralee MD.

Cllr Wall said the grass cutting issue was cropping up at estates all over Tralee. Cllr Wall said biodiversity was fine, but if children couldn’t play in green areas because of the length of the grass, then that was a problem.
