Grass cutting regime

Green Spaces are responsible for cutting grass owned by Bridgend County Borough Council. Other organisations such as Community Councils and Housing Associations also cut public grass areas within the borough.

Green Spaces are responsible for cutting grass on:

  • central reservations
  • highway verges
  • parks and playing fields
  • playgrounds, but please note that not all playgrounds in the county borough are owned by us
  • public open spaces

As councils are in the position of balancing biodiversity with issues such as highway safety requirements, we still have to cut at specific locations in order to maintain driver line of sight or to ensure that footpaths remain accessible. We maintain areas of open space and highways in support of wildflowers and have greatly reduced our annual grass cutting schedules to actively manage our land to promote flowering and ecological diversity wherever possible.

They do not cut grass that is:

  • on properties or estates owned by bodies other than us like community councils or housing associations
  • privately owned

Grass cutting commences in April and continues until October.

  • 2024 dates will be announced shortly.
