When and where do we cut the grass?

During the summer months, usually between May 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. Please see the map below for our verge cutting and village grass cutting routes.

Within urban areas and villages, we cut the grass three times a year. The documents below shows which villages we will grass cut this year and the planned dates for the second cut. The first cut has been completed.

On principle roads and road verges between villages, a grass cut is done twice a year. For further information on the locations and approximate timings for first cuts, please see the area documents and accompanying reference map below.

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 who carry out the grass cutting in their villages on our behalf.

If you have a query about grass cutting in your village or neighbourhood we would advise you to check these lists to ensure you are contacting the correct organisation.
