The roadside verges in Minehead are owned by Somerset Council who follow their own specification for the management of their roadside verges and can be seen if you CLICK HERE
In most towns across the county, there is a requirement for the roadside verges to be cut on a more frequent basis. In order to achieve this, the town or parish council very often need to subsidise this.
In Minehead, the Town Council carry out monthly grass cutting during the growing season (Typically March – October) of the roadside verges. Roadside verges can provide safe habitats for a whole array of wildlife and because of this, some areas will be left to support Minehead Town Council’s own rewilding project. As with Somerset Councils grass cutting aims, these rewilding areas will not conflict with roadside safety requirements.
