Grass cutting

Public areas

The Council is responsible for the maintenance of grass in public areas and aim to cut grass every two to three weeks between March and the end of October, subject to weather conditions.

Some grassed areas are kept long to help improve the living landscape and areas where bulbs have been established will remain uncut until mid-June to ensure the plants flower the following season.

Treatment of edges is usually carried out by weed control, but this may not always fall on the day the grass is cut.

To report any problems phone 0161 770 6644.

Private land

Maintaining private land on shop, pub, factory or other commercial sites is not a council responsibility. Please report it to the landowner.
