Issues with grass cutting, trees, hedges and weeds

Contents

Hedges and other vegetation

Bushes and vegetation often can't be cut back due to the bird nesting season (between March and August) so we mostly carry out work from September to January.

Private properties

If vegetation from a private garden is overhanging or blocking a road or pavement, our Highways team have the power to make landowners cut back vegetation.

Public land

If the bush is on public land and overgrowing, you can report it and our Grounds Maintenance teams will investigate in most areas.

In the East Northamptonshire area, this need to be reported to the town or parish council (including parks and open spaces).

If your area isn't listed, you may be a resident of West Northamptonshire.
