At the Council meeting on Tuesday 9th March 2021 Burwell Parish Council has agreed to run a pilot scheme during 2021 on a few areas of grass verge to encourage the growth of wildflowers. The areas are still waiting approval from Cambridgeshire County Council Highways Department.
We have been advised by the County Council Ecologist that the areas in the first year should remain uncut till towards the end of the grass cutting season when the grass should be cut and collected. We will not be sowing wildflower seeds on these areas in the first year, but will look to see what flowers and grasses grow.
More information on how this project is progressing will be added throughout the summer.
