Knotweed in Glossop - The Plan

  • Recognise knotweed as a community problem, and Glossop as a place where it could be eradicated efficiently.
  • Map all knotweed growth in Glossop and publish distribution maps online so everybody knows exactly where it is and where it isn’t.
  • Attempt to minimise spread from existing patches by all means permitted by law.
  • Destroy knotweed systematically, starting at the highest points of infection.
  • Monitor waterways to ensure that Glossop’s streams and rivers are knotweed free.
