Grass verges and cutting
We cut the grass so that people can use roads and pavements safely. Although environmental issues are an important concern, grass cutting is done for highway safety reasons rather than environmental purposes.
We do not cut the grass that is:
- privately owned
- on properties or estates owned by bodies other than us
You can download a list of verges and other areas that we are responsible for cutting.
These areas are cut on a 14 day timetable, but if it's too wet we may have problems getting onto the area. We have to wait until the grass is dry.
If the area is not on the list, it is likely to be the responsibility of either Highways at Gloucestershire County Council or the local parish or town council.
