This is a new site that we are testing!
We are redesigning and improving the Cumbria County Council website which is why these new pages are different.
Report problems with potholes, road damage, flooding and drainage, traffic lights, street lights, pedestrian crossings, trees, vegetation, bollards, manhole covers and more.
You can report a problem with trees, hedges and weeds by the side of the road or street. For example:
We will then check whether the problem is on land that we manage. If it is not, we will then contact the adjacent landowner. We will remind them of their obligation under the Highways Act to cut back and remove any dangers or obstructions.
We maintain and cut a large number of roadside grass verges across Cumbria. We cut grass verges over the summer to make sure that:
We also work with Cumbria Wildlife Trust to make sure we manage verges in an environmentally friendly way. This can mean that one section of verge is cut at one time of year whilst another nearby section is left until later in the year.
