We were recently made aware of the Blue Campaign which…
- Asks Councils to “allocate areas of land which you manage to wildflower meadow. This would mean an annual cut-and-collect followed by little or no maintenance, reducing your costs and carbon footprint, whilst encouraging wildlife to re-inhabit the area”
- Working with Plantlife, provides best practice guidance for Councils to consider managing verges
- Provides templates to encourage the public to write to our District and Town Councillors to raise awareness of the campaign
Our neighbours in Stroud Town Council, Chipping Sodbury Town Council, and South Gloucestershire Council are leading the way on this…. time to take action Wiltshire!
