Leicestershire County Council grass verge cutting update
The County Council's grass cutting programme for rural verges (outside of urban/village areas) commenced on the 20th of April. To begin with the County Council will only be cutting the grass in rural areas where it impacts on road user's visibility. The approach will be reviewed regularly to ensure they are continuing to meet the national guidance on safe working and social distancing, whilst meeting customer expectations and highway safety requirements. The start of the urban grass cutting programme was delayed so that we could ensure that the appropriate levels of equipment and resource were in place to enable compliance with social distancing requirements.
The urban grass cutting programme will now commence on the 4th of May. Due to the delay and the current rate of grass growth it will take longer to complete the first cut than normal and the quality of the cut might not be up to the usual standards.
The County Council is currently unable to specify cutting dates for individual areas and is therefore unable to respond to queries of this nature. Please be patient whilst the Operatives work hard to get around the whole County.
