We are responsible for maintaining grass verges on the public highway, including on roundabouts, compounds, central reserves and roadside verges, to ensure that people can use roads and pavements safely.
We do not cut grass that is privately owned or on properties or estates owned by groups other than us.
Verges will be cut six times a year, with grass being allowed to grow to an average uniform height of 300mm. This excludes weeds and isolated patches of grass which may be higher than 300mm.
We will make sure that all grass clippings that fall outside the grassed area are removed immediately after cutting (grass clippings will lie where they fall on grass areas).
