Green area maintenance

Grass and hedge cutting

We maintain grassed areas in the borough, including verges on public highways and green areas in council estates.

How often we cut the grass in an area depends on variations in the weather. For example, in warm wet weather, grass grows faster and requires more frequent cutting.

How to report overgrown grass or hedges

If the grass is in your estate or a park, email

If the grass is anywhere else, report the problem using Fix My Street
