Who is responsible for grass cutting in my area?

The majority of the grass cutting across Cambridgeshire is carried out by one of our sub-contractors. However, formal agreements are in place with some Parish Councils to carry out grass cutting in their own villages.

If you have a query about grass cutting in your village or neighbourhood, please check the lists to ensure you are contacting the correct organisation.

When do we cut the grass?

During the summer months, usually between April and October, we have a grass cutting programme to maintain the grass verges along the majority of Cambridgeshire’s roads. This is county wide and based on average grass growth.

Towns and villages

Within urban areas and villages, we cut the grass three times a year. Our first cut started first week of April. You can find details of which villages we cut and when below.

Rural and principle road verges

On principle roads and road verges between villages, a grass cut is done twice a year. Our first cut begins April 2019. Please see our cutting schedule below.

Grass near junctions that may obstruct views of drivers, cyclists and pedestrians are monitored and given additional cuts as required.

How can I report an issue about grass?

If you notice a verge where the length of grass is too high and causing a safety issue, you can report it to us via our online reporting tool.
