Japanese Knotweed is an invasive, non-native species which is now established in the wild. Vigorous growth can damage buildings and hard surfaces as well as causing problems for native wildlife.
Hastings Borough Council has a spraying schedule in place for areas to be sprayed three times a year for the treatment of Japanese Knotweed only on its own land. Complete eradication can take 5 years.
If you would like to report Japanese knotweed on Council land you can do this by emailing us or telephoning us on 01424 451066.
