Report overgrown grass, hedges and vegetation in Eastbourne

Eastbourne Borough Council maintains vegetation such as trees, hedges and shrubs on council-owned land. Vegetation on privately owned land is the responsibility of the landowner or occupier. 

Grass verges

All grass verges on council owned land are cut by Eastbourne Borough Council. We do not cut grass that is on privately owned land, or on properties owned by bodies other than the council.
