(Please note that the Parish of Bedale ends at Bedale Beck. Aiskew and Leeming Bar Parish Council are responsible for maintaining the public open spaces that are in Aiskew and Leeming Bar.)
Bedale Town Council works with the residents of Bedale and the Council's Contractors to ensure that Bedale Town is kept looking its best. The Town Council is responsible for maintaining some areas of the town, other areas are maintained by Hambleton District Council, others still by North Yorkshire County Council and the rest is maintained by private landowners.
The maintenance of the grassed areas of Bedale Park, Wycar Green, The Beckside and Harbour Area, Southfields Public Open Spaces (Off Iddison Drive), Burrill Road Public Open Space and the grassed roadside verges in Bedale are the responsibility of Bedale Town Council. (This does not mean that the land is owned by the Council!)
Bedale Town Council is responsible for the maintenance of a number of areas of shrubs and hedges around the town, these are mostly associated with the areas of public open space.
There are a number of magnificent mature trees to be found in Bedale Park. There are also trees growing on Wycar Green, on the Beckside and on the public open spaces in the town. The Council has these trees inspected on a two-yearly basis by expert arboriculturalists and monitors their health on a more regular basis.
