The County Council looks after verges and roadside grass in Bassetlaw, Gedling, Newark and Sherwood and Rushcliffe districts.

It is responsible for cutting more than 5,000 kilometres of grass verge, with grass cutting taking place from April to the end of September – and if needed into October, depending on the weather.

In towns and villages grass verges are cut five times within the season, including strimming around obstacles -such as benches and signposts.

For highway verges between towns and villages the Council cuts the grass twice with two additional cuts to maintain visibility at road junctions, allowing motorists a clear view in all directions.

Grass cuttings are not collected due to the additional cost. Weeds at the edge of roads will be sprayed twice during season.

Any queries relating to grass cutting and weed control on the public highway in the Bassetlaw, Gedling, Newark and Sherwood and Rushcliffe districts should be directed to the County Council on 0300 500 80 80.
