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/estates owned by bodies other than the council  

To see verges and other areas that we are responsible for cutting view: 

These areas are cut on a 14 day timetable, but if it's too wet we may have problems getting onto the area, then 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.
