The majority of grass verges adjacent to roads are within the public highway and therefore come under the responsibility of the council as Highway Authority.
In fulfilling its responsibilities as Highway Authority, Haringey Council is required to keep verges safe and unobstructed and this is particularly important at road junctions where clear visibility for motorists and pedestrians is important.
Haringey Council arranges grass cutting in-house or via external contractors. Funding is allocated annually through the routine highways maintenance budget to ensure that grass cutting is continued throughout the growing season.
