Yes, let's encourage the wildflowers to flourish, but I would like the very edges of the roads to be kept cut, as if this isn't done, over time the verges creep into the road and narrow the width, causing safety problems; visibility may also be reduced by tall flowers and grass. This has become a problem in the Lake District, where I come from. It's also the case that some birds, e.g. blackbirds, thrushes, need short grass in which to look for their food. I'm sure it's possible to meet all these needs with careful planning.

Flowers are essential to pollinators, and lovely in themselves.

Wildlife, including pollinators, are extremely important for the health of our environment and therefore us and our future generations

In a climate emergency, every opportunity should be taken to sequester carbon, reduce emissions and support biodiversity. The simple choice to leave verges to grow long achieves all three aims, and can save the council money in a time of stretched budgets.

I don't think there is any need for the grass in so many public spaces to be cut, especially at the sides of the road. What is the purpose in that!?

It shouldn't cost anything and will benefit wildflowers, birds, insects and, consequently. people.
