Grass cutting

About the grass cutting process, how often grass will be cut alongside roads in Suffolk and how to report a grass cutting problem.

All verges adjacent to the public highway are cut for safety purposes to maintain visibility at junctions, and to ensure that road and pavement widths are not reduced.

In areas where there are no pavements, there may be a need to provide a safe refuge on the highway verge for pedestrians, particularly near busy roads.
