Verge Cutting

A grass verge in Chesham

From April 2016, Chesham Town Council has taken over the cutting of many of the town's grass verges from Bucks Council. We aim to provide a better service, based on our more local knowledge. We are also aware of the threat that mowing and strimming equipment poses to the local hedgehog population; all of our equipment has stickers on it from the British Hedgehog Preservation Society, reminding our operatives to check areas for hedgehogs before they start work. We manage some of the town's verges for wildflowers and grasses and you can read more about this here.

We carry out the cuts on a monthly basis throughout the growing season. Below is a list of the verges that we cut - however, we may not cut all of the verges on one road; some may be cut by Paradigm Housing or Bucks Council. Depending on the weather, we aim to do a cut a month during the growing season. If you think your verge has been missed out, or you're not happy with something, please let us know!
