Open Space Grass Cutting

Areas within the Council owned cemeteries and closed churchyards are also included. The cutting of the open spaces commences mid-March weather permitting and cuts are carried out every fortnight until the end of October. Grass arisings are not removed.

Meadow Grass Cutting

Meadow grass areas are those areas which are allowed to grow longer, usually for ecological interest. They are cut annually during late summer with arisings removed so that a build up of nutrients does not occur. Some locations have a narrow swath of grass cut alongside the edges to ensure areas look neat commonly known as picture framing.
