Garage Block Maintenance
Throughout the year, we carry out a cleansing, sweeping and weeding programme to maintain all the garage blocks within Stevenage. This is to ease the build-up of litter and debris from the blocks and to suppress weed growth.
- A fortnightly litter pick
- Quarterly sweeping by a mechanical sweeper
- Up to 3 weed treatment applications per year
- Ad-hoc works outside the stated schedules
This is covered in the cost of garage tenants weekly licence fee. If you own a garage within a block you will be required to pay a proportion of the annual cost, currently £12.14 for 2022/2023.
Please refer to the 'frequently asked questions' for questions relating to this charge.
Fly tipping in garage compounds can be reported online.
The cleansing is done on a fortnightly cycle, as below.
|Day||Week One Area||Week Two Area|
|Wednesday||Old Town||Shephall / Poplars|
|Friday||Industrial Area / Gunnelswood||Chells Manor|
Treatment is carried out to shrubs and hard surfaces two to three times a year.
Shrubs and hard surfaces for March / June were completed by the end of April. There will also be treatments carried out in June / July and August / September.
