Bournville Stewardship Services Team

What does the Landscape Operative do?
The Landscape Operative works in the Village on a daily basis (Monday- Friday) maintaining the visual appearance of the public open spaces in Bournville Stewardship Services ownership and provides a presence in the community.  Some of the services provided by the Landscape Operative include grass and hedge cutting, weed and moss control and refilling grit bins.  These services are provided by the developer until the area is handed over to Bournville Stewardship Services.  The Landscape Operative litter picks across the Village regardless of ownership excluding the Village centre.  If you are in doubt over who currently owns the land please contact Bournville Stewardship Services.
