Verge Cutting

A grass verge in Chesham

From April 2016, Chesham Town Council has taken over the cutting of many of the town's grass verges from Bucks County Council. We aim to provide a better service, based on our more local knowledge. We are also aware of the threat that mowing and strimming equipment poses to the local hedgehog population; all of our equipment has stickers on it from the British Hedgehog Preservation Society, reminding our operatives to check areas for hedgehogs before they start work. 

Here is a list of the verges as we've cut them. If you think your verge has been missed out, or you're not happy with something, please let us know!
