Our contractors have worked hard to catch up with the programme after wet and warm weather caused delays to cuts in June.
The teams are now up to speed and on schedule.
The improved and updated programme is available to view online at www.westsussex.gov.uk/grasscutting
We operate two different rotas for grass cutting in West Sussex.
In towns and urban areas we make seven cuts a year between March and November (except locations where arrangements are in place for district and borough councils to cut).
These are done by teams using lawnmowers and strimmers.
This is two cuts more than the recommended national safety level of five times a year.
In the countryside, or where there are no pavements, we maintain the verges so pedestrians can avoid walking in the road.
We give verges in rural areas:
Cuts in rural areas are carried out by teams using a tractor.
County Council Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, John O’Brien, said: “Our contractors are out all over West Sussex working hard to keep our grass and verges maintained.
“There have been delays in some areas, but we are now back to where we need to be.
“Cut times can vary each year depending on growing conditions.
“Normally it takes about four to six weeks to cut all grass across the county.”
John added: “If you have any concerns about the grass, please go online and check our grass cutting schedule to see when we will be visiting your area next.
“If there is a roadside safety issue regarding visibility affecting road users, please report it to us online.”
We do not collect grass cuttings as the cost involved would restrict the number of cuts we could carry out.
We try to blow cuttings back onto the verge. Some will cover or fall into drains but this is unlikely to block them.
Grass cutting in recreational areas such as parks and housing areas is carried out by your district or borough council or housing authority.
Highway verges on the A27, M23 and A23 are looked after by Highways England. ?

The draft strategy sets out the approach to promoting and enabling walking and cycling as part of the transport mix. It explains how they have prioritised a list of instrastructure improvement schemes that have been suggested by walking, cycling and equestrian groups, parish and district councils, the South Downs National Park Authorirty, and other stakeholders as part of a pre-consulatation exercise.
The final strategy will serve as a framework that will enable the Council to bid for funding in order to deliver the priority schemes (subject to feasibility studies).
