Grass cutting and grounds maintenance

The grass cutting season in West Oxfordshire usually starts in April and ends in October. Highway verges are cut regularly on a rota basis of around two to three weeks; the exact timing will depend on weather conditions and the rate of growth.

Grass cutting responsibilities

This work is done by a number of service providers, within West Oxfordshire, and below is a list of the key organisations responsible for grass cutting and maintenance:

  • Oxfordshire County Council Highways cut verges, high speed roads and roads outside the 30mph zones. Please contact Oxfordshire County Council.
  • West Oxfordshire District Council is responsible for various verges within 30mph zones within selected areas of the district.
  • The District Council is also responsible for Council-owned property and this includes some housing estates and communal areas including Madley Park, Shilton Park, Deer Park and Kilkenny Lane Country Park.
  • Town and parish councils are responsible for all localised areas, including sports facilities, village greens and some highway verges. Please: view your town or parish council contact details.
