Grass cutting and 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 depends on weather conditions and growth rates.

Grass cutting responsibilities

We are responsible for:

  • verges within 30mph zones within selected areas of the district.
  • council owned property, and some housing estates and communal areas including Madley Park, Shilton Park, Deer Park and Kilkenny Lane Country Park

Oxfordshire County Council Highways cut verges, high speed roads and roads outside the 30mph zones.

Town and parish councils are responsible for all localised areas, including sports facilities, village greens and some highway verges.

Cottsway and other housing associations are responsible for their own housing land.
