Councils

Rewilding Britain, verge by verge

The ecology team of South Gloucestershire Council created a model rewilding scheme on road verges and parks for other councils nationwide to follow.

* BLUE campaigns to change the grass cutting regime in areas of parks, road verges and roundabouts so that not ALL the grass is cut ALL the time.

* For those areas of grass left uncut, consider leaving islands of grass, or consider cutting paths through large areas of uncut grass. Cut and rake just once, in September.

* South Gloucestershire Council have established a great example through 2017 and recorded many new species of flora and fauna as a result.
