Services which may be unavailable

Grass cutting


Leicestershire County Council carries out the majority of grass cutting in the borough. We, Hinckley & Bosworth Borough Council, however look after some of the parks. Parish and town councils arrange their own grass cutting and sometimes they ask us to cut the grass on their behalf. Therefore, you will often see our employees cutting the grass in the whole borough.


Leicestershire County Council cuts the grass on publically maintained highways (adopted highways) in the following locations:

  • Grass verges
  • Roundabouts
  • Central reservations

View grass cutting schedule (leicestershire.gov.uk). Highways not publically owned (unadopted highways) are maintained by the land owner. More about highway adoption status (leicestershire.gov.uk)

Parks and open spaces

The land owner arranges grass cutting in parks and open spaces. Parks and open spaces we maintain.
The relevant parish and town council arranges grass cutting in other parks and open spaces. Visit leicestershireparishcouncils.org for more information.
