Weed control

Please note Huntingdonshire District Council is not responsible for weed control. Please direct any enquiries you have to Cambridgeshire County Council Grass Cutting.

Grass cutting

We have ceased grass cutting over the winter months.

The grass cutting season will generally be between March and October depending on weather and ground conditions.

Grass verges

Cambridgeshire County Council is responsible for most of the verges in Huntingdonshire. Depending on the location of the verge, it could be cut by either Huntingdonshire District Council, town and parish councils, or Cambridgeshire County Council.

If you are unsure who cuts the grass verges please contact us on 01480 388640.

Parking on grass verges

We have no legal power to prevent cars parking on grass verges. Please report any issues or problems to Cambridgeshire County Council.

You should report any cars obstructing a pavement to the police.

We can prevent people using grass verges to sell vehicles if we can prove it is being done as a business. If you believe this is happening please report this to us and we will investigate.


We do not trim hedges during bird nesting season (March to August) and while other animals have their young. HDC-owned hedges are maintained between September and February, so please do not report an issue outside of this time.
