Space to Thrive
Back in 2019, we changed how we maintain around 1,700 acres of our grassland in the district. This includes everything from big areas like parks, right through to communal green spaces and small neighbourhood verges.
For decades, we’ve been cutting all of the grass every few weeks. Although we did this with the best intentions, we are realising that closely cropped grass is a desert for biodiversity. Now we’re doing things differently to restore lost grassland habitats before it’s too late to support our rapidly declining populations of pollinators.
