We are responsible for maintaining grass verges on the public highway, including on roundabouts, central reservations, 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.
This year’s schedule will be available shortly.
Grass is 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 blown back onto the verge after cutting (grass clippings will lie where they fall on grass areas).
Grass grows quickly in spring, so Neighbourhood Management have put in place an extra grass cutting team. This team will be in place from 17 April onwards to help us cut more grass quickly and with maximum impact.
The teams must be kept to the schedule on the designated streets. Any decision to move them elsewhere must be a last resort. If they are moved elsewhere, it will leave them behind on the whole schedule.
