Grass verges

Parking on grass verges causes damage.

Report damage to a grass verge

Once we receive your report we will inspect the grass verge to decide whether we need to carry out any repairs and if anything can be done to prevent future damage. However, we often find this moves the problem further up the road.

The law on parking on grass verges

You could be prosecuted for causing damage to a verge.

If you park on a verge where there are double yellow lines, you are subject to this parking restriction and could receive a parking ticket. It is also an offence to drive along the pavement.

Please help us keep verges tidy and safe by finding somewhere else to park.
