Weed control

Please note Huntingdonshire District Council is not responsible for weed control. Please direct any enquiries you have to Cambridgeshire County Council Grass Cutting.

Grass cutting

We cut our grassed areas across the district at various frequencies, depending on how often it is needed and the type of site it is. For example, certain banks may only be cut once or twice a year, whereas playing fields may be cut more frequently.

There are 2 ways you can submit a form to report a grass cutting issue - via the customer portal or as a guest.

If you have a MyHuntingdonshire customer portal account or would like to create one, click on the Report a Grass Cutting Issue with an HDC Owned Tree via the Customer Portal button below. Then sign in or register, and scroll down to the 'Outdoors and Trees - Request Work to Grass, Shrubs or Hedges' form. Your personal details will be filled in for you and you will be able to track the progress of your requests and save partially completed forms. 

Report a Grass Cutting Issue via the Customer Portal (Recommended)
You can also submit a form as a guest. However, you will not be able to track or receive feedback on your request. Also, our customer services team will only be able to provide limited support if you submit your form outside of the customer portal.

Grass verges

Cambridgeshire County Council is responsible for most of the verges in Huntingdonshire. Depending on the location of the verge, it could be cut by either Huntingdonshire District Council, town and parish councils, or Cambridgeshire County Council.

If you are unsure who cuts the grass verges please contact us on 01480 388640.

Parking on grass verges

We have no legal power to prevent cars parking on grass verges. Please report any issues or problems to Cambridgeshire County Council.

You should report any cars obstructing a pavement to the police.

We can prevent people using grass verges to sell vehicles if we can prove it is being done as a business. If you believe this is happening please report this to us and we will investigate.


We do not trim hedges during bird nesting season (March to August) and while other animals have their young. HDC-owned hedges are maintained between September and February, so please do not report an issue outside of this time.
