Grass cutting

The council maintains over 10 million square metres of grassland in and around Milton Keynes, mowing on a cyclic program between March and late October. 

Schedules are arranged to match the expected growing pattern of the grass and any specific management requirements for biodiversity, expected public use and highway safety. Rural road verge mowing of junction sightlines and visibility splays are not included in the above schedule.

Schedules can be delayed by:

  • public holidays
  • bad weather - prolonged dry weather or persistent rain 

Due to the council's prioritisation of other services during Covid-19, grass cutting may be delayed in your area. Teams are out mowing but at a reduced capacity and are following government guidance.  The mowing schedules will be updated once capacity is stabilised at normal levels. 

Areas responsible for their own grass cutting are listed on the Devolved Parishes page.
