Native wildflowers in the borough

We are currently delivering our five-year Wildflower and Grassland Strategy action plan.

The feedback we received on this was incredible and we have been contacted by residents, parish councils, businesses and community groups all wanting to know how they can play their part to encourage wildflowers and boost biodiversity in the borough to help pollinators like bees.

What is happening first?

We will create a minimum of 45 mini native wildflower meadows across the borough each year - one in each of our ward areas. These have been selected by our councillors following discussions with their residents.

Ground preparation might look bare at first, because large expanses of soil will be exposed as we remove grass from the meadow sites. Grass can compete with wildflowers so it is important we remove it. Then seed sowing can begin.
