Knotweed in Glossop – Getting Rid

This site is under development!

Knotweed destruction and disposal has to be done very carefully, and in full adherence to the Environment Agency’s Knotweed Code of Practice and a strict set of laws controlling the handling and disposal of chemicals and invasive plant material. But it isn’t rocket science and any Glossopian with steady hands and common sense could do it. With expert guidance from Corvus Consulting and Mampam Conservation, and local volunteers trained in the relevant techniques and with applicable licences from the National Proficiency Test Council, we will seek approval from the Environment Agency and funding from elsewhere to begin systematic eradication of Japanese knotweed from the uppermost tributaries of the Mersey Basin (i.e. Glossop).
