Housing Service - Grass Cutting Scheme
We operate a grass cutting scheme, for a small charge. You can apply for the scheme if you are a Moray Council tenant and you are:
- aged 65 or over, with no physically able adults aged 18 - 64 in the household
- under 65 and in receipt of any physical or mental-health related benefit such as Personal Independence Payment (PIP), Disability Living Allowance (DLA), Adult Disability Payment (ADP), Attendance Allowance, Employment and Support Allowance (ESA).
- registered blind
- any age, but due to your ‘vulnerability’, would not be capable of cutting grass. We may ask for evidence in such cases.
If you meet the above criteria and you get the housing element of Universal Credit or full / partial Housing Benefit, we will provide this service to you free of charge. If you do not get these benefits you will have to pay for the service. The annual cost for the service is currently around £60.
During the growing season (April to October), you will have your grass cut 15 times. The service does not include grass lifting or other gardening work.
