Local Verge Management

Cllr. Ruth Milsom,  Ian & Steve (Crosspool Forum),   Lee Kent (Amey).

Local Cllr. Ruth Milsom is keen that we start raising some interest and awareness around the topic of verges in a gentle way without wanting to alarm anyone or give the impression that any kind of change has already been decided.

There have been suggestions from local residents about increasing biodiversity on the verges, and also concerns about how the standard mowing regime can inadvertently cause damage to bulbs and flowers that have been planted.

Thinking we can focus on wanting to have conversations locally to get people’s thoughts on how the verges might be managed for aesthetic and ecological benefit. Ian & Steve representing the Crosspool Forum, met up with Cllr. Ruth Milsom and Lee Kent from Amey to deliberate the opportunities opening up and to explore modifying mowing regimes and what grows on the verges.

Keen to initially get people’s views, Cllr. Milsom will be writing to residents with a survey, which will be followed up with a public meeting shortly afterward.

Once sufficient feedback has been received from an initial survey, Cllr Milsom will go to the council Highways team to discuss any enhancements that are broadly agreed on by residents.
