  • Thank you for your report. I have visited the site pinpointed on the map, in Cumnor Hill by Hids Copse Road junction, see photos. This vision splay grass cutting request was submitted to the team responsible, to be cut back. They have sent an update: "Not due until July as this is urban grass"
    We prioritise grass cutting according to the use of each section of highway. Priority is given to visibility splays, cycle routes, and some other routes. The main rural cut takes place in July, with urban cuts to follow that.
    The layout of service strips on the highway is intended to encourage you to cut the grass over the service strip, which will enhance the appearance of your property. Local authority grass cutting contractors are generally unable to attend to service strips as often as you would like.
