Verging on sensible

Posted On June 9, 2015

More Chorleywooders are signing the petition to protect wildflowers on our roadside verges.  The wildflower charity, Plantlife, is asking people  for the second year running to sign a petition to help convince councils to adopt their guidelines. Many plants once found in meadows now only thrive beside roads, where they provide essential habitat for insects. But 1 in 10 of the plants is at risk of extinction, in part because councils cut verges too early. Local authorities say shorter verges are safer for drivers and pedestrians by allowing a better line of sight.

“Rural road verges are a vital refuge for wild flowers driven out of our farmland.”stress  Plantlife, “In turn, wild flowers support our birds, bees and other wildlife. We want to see road verges managed better whilst remaining safe for motorists. Not only can it be done – it could save money as well.”

Plantlife’s letter reads…

Dear Sir/Madam

Please adopt Plantlife’s guidelines for managing road verges to benefit wild flowers and other nature. I know that road verges are under considerable pressure. Priorities for safety and access, along with budget constraints and difficulties with the collection of litter and grass clippings can mean that enhancing their wildlife value is often low on the list. But we believe that the adoption of a few basic principles will improve our verges for nature, bringing benefits for wildlife, for us and for future generations.

Yours faithfully,

Someone who cares about wildlife on our verges
