Harry Clarke asks when are Effingham butterflies, bees and wildflowers going to be protected? Cutting grass verges may make Effingham look very neat and tidy, but wildflowers and wildlife need somewhere to live and feed.
Shouldn’t Guildford Borough Council be following Mole Valley’s lead?
A24 lane closures while grass cutting protects wildflower areas
The grass cutting works have on this occasion been designed to protect butterflies, bees and wildflowers, and will also deal with litter picking at the same time
There will be almost four weeks of temporary lane closures on the A24 through Mole Valley while grass cutting works take place.
Starting from Monday, Mole Valley District Council (MVDC) is cutting the highway verges along the A24 between Capel and the M25 at Leatherhead , but this time with the maintenance of natural wildlife habitats in mind.
Butterflies and bees are among the species that will benefit from the new grass cutting arrangements around sections of wildflower.
