Grass cutting and weed maintenance

Grass cutting

Park areas, open spaces and grass verges are cut, on average, up to 13 times a year (weather permitting). All other areas such as beck sides, back lands and meadows are cut three times per year. The grass is cut using a mix of cylinder, rotary, and flail cutting machines. Grass cuttings are not collected.


Roads and footpaths will be sprayed twice a year over the period April to September. Inspections will take place to identify any areas that require a further application.


You can use Report It to request grass cutting for a park area, open space or grass verge, or report a problem with weeds.
