Grass verge cutting increases

Nottinghamshire County Council is increasing the number of times it will be cutting grass verges.

As part of this year’s budget savings, it was originally intended to reduce the frequency of routine grass cutting in urban areas from six to four times a year.

However, the county council has increased that frequency to five as a result of public feedback and has also issued a guide to people who said they were happy to maintain verges near to their homes if it helped to save money.

Guidelines can be found online at www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/roadverges.
