Maintenance of Parks and Open Spaces 2017/18

Maghull Town Council Grounds Maintenance Operatives maintain 13 parks and 18 open spaces across Maghull. The map and links above provide information regarding each park.

This year, Maghull Town Council has invested significantly in its grounds maintenance operations – the council investing to increase the number of its grounds maintenance operatives, and to operate new more efficient equipment. As a result of this investment, parks and open spaces will be maintained on a weekly cycle; as opposed to fortnightly or sometimes three weekly cycles; as in previous years.

The schedule in the attachment below shows the order which parks and open spaces will be visited during 2017/18. Although a day has been allocated for each, it may be necessary due to inclement weather, equipment failure or operational necessity to adjust the allocated day. The day allocation below is therefore indicative.


Maintenance of Parks and Open Spaces Schedule 2017/18
This schedule is monitored daily by Maghull Town Council’s Operations and Contracts Manager. If you have any questions or queries, please email via info@maghul-tc.gov.uk or call 0151 526 3705.
