The majority of grass verges adjacent to roads are within the public highway and therefore come under our responsibility as highway authority.

In fulfilling its responsibilities as highway authority, we are required to keep verges safe and unobstructed and this is particularly important at road junctions where clear visibility for motorists and pedestrians is important.

In April 2015 Bolton at Home appointed a private sector operator to maintain communal land on former council estates. Bolton council no longer has any responsibility for land belonging to Bolton at Home that does not form part of the adopted highway.
