Livin – Grass Cutting Concerns in Chilton

Members and officers of the Town Council are disappointed that once again the Town Council are receiving concerns about grass cutting and associated works that Livin are responsible for.  Concerns include poor standard of grass cutting, grass cut unevenly and some patches  & edges not cut at all.    Please see below for who is responsible for grassed areas:

 OPEN SPACES           – predominantly the responsible of Durham County Council.  Any concerns telephone 0300 0260 000 or log onto

DURHAM ROAD, PLAY AREAS AND THE CEMETERY ALONG WITH THE PLANTERS & FLOWER TUBS – Responsibility of Chilton Town Council.  Any concerns call into the Council offices, telephone or email.

LIVIN PROPERTIES    – as per agreements with Livin they are responsible for grass as identified.    

 As per Paul Gray, Town Clerk “The grass cutting is a recurring problem year on year & despite the Town Councils best efforts to try and raise concerns further with Livin the past 2 years it seems 2018 is going to be no different.  The Town Council have wrote to Livin in both 2016 & 2017 and to date had no response.  Last year we copied both Councillor Christine Potts and Councillor Brian Stephen, Durham CC Portfolio Holder for Neighbourhood and Local Partnerships into a letter of concern.  Subsequently following advice the concerns were also forwarded to local MP, Mr Phil Wilson however unfortunately he tried but couldn’t resolve the issues with Livin”

 Anyone with issues relating to grass cutting as organised by Livin need to email:

 or alternatively telephone 0800 587 4538
