Report uncut grass in public spaces

We do not respond to individual requests for grass cutting but do use the information you provide to monitor our service. 

What you need to know

We have a statutory duty to protect and enhance biodiversity in Gloucester City to improve the quality of life for both residents and wildlife. For more information see our Gloucester urban greening project

To help protect and restore biodiversity for selected areas we have introduced a more sensitive regime for cutting the grass. On these sites we may cut the grass less frequently to allow plants to flower and seed providing a food source for insects and other wildlife. 

Elsewhere we aim to cut grass in parks and public open spaces every 20 working days between the beginning of April to the end of September with the exception of Podsmead district where the Podsmead Clearance Team a social enterprise business run their own community grass cutting scheme.
