Report grass that needs cutting
We have the responsibility to maintain the grass on land that is owned by the Council.
16 grass cuts are carried out every year. 14 of which are on a fortnightly basis during high season - March to October. The remaining 2 cuts take place during the winter months, when weather conditions allow.
Grass cutting may sometimes have to be postponed due to adverse weather conditions such as heavy rain, frost or drought.
Most grass is maintained at a height of 4-8cm, using both pedestrian and ride on mowers.
Due to the cost and environmental factors, the cuttings are disposed of evenly across the site. However, footpaths and hard surfaces are cleared of grass cuttings after mowing.
Grass not owned by the Council
We sometimes cut grass on land owned by Yarlington Homes, Highways or Parish Councils. Any work on behalf of these organisations must be authorised by them first. Requests need to be made to the organisation, who will then contact us directly if the grass is to be maintained.
You can contact:
- County Highways on 0300 1232224
- Yarlington via your “My Yarlington" account or their website
All other private land is the responsibility of the landowner.
