Grassland Strategy 2023-2033

The city’s network of bee roads are vital to increase the biodiversity of the city. They provide vital habitats for pollinators and other wildlife - more pollinators are found on well-managed verges than in the neighbouring countryside. Nearly 45% of our total flora is found on road verges.

These attractive wildlife verges quickly attract pollinators and provide safe havens to support more wildlife, they can also provide corridors so that that pollinators can disperse more easily and to better connect to other species-rich areas of meadows, parks and nature reserves.

We have produced a short film to explain more about our grassland cutting and maintenance. You can watch it here.
