In much the same way as we encourage residents to clear the footpaths in the winter if we have snow, there are very few good reasons to prevent a resident living in an urban area with a 30mph speed limit from cutting the verge outside of their property. If you want to cut the grass then:
– Use a petrol mower if possible, if not then make sure your electric mower has a protected plug or is connected to a protected socket
– Make sure there are no big stones that could flick up and break windows, damage cars or hurt yourself or a passing pedestrian
– Stop mowing when somebody comes close
– If you want to collect the clippings then dispose of them responsibly. Leave the last cuts clippings in place, this will help to replenish the soils nutrients.
