Im sick of newham council cutting all of the nice wildflowers down and not picking up glass. They even cut it down in the rain.

Untimely mowing is detrimental to wildflowers and meadows, in general. In affition, it will haem birds and other wildlife, during the nesting season.

I’m signing as we need to make these changes for bees, butterflies and other animals, nature works well on her own so let’s not interfere, bring back the wildflower meadows, leave the park areas alone so we can all enjoy nature and wildlife, after it will make everyone feel better! Let’s get children interested to in the hope that they will know how to care for our beautiful planet in the future. Together we CAN make a difference!

Totally unnecessary unless it affects drivers' visibility. Councils need to save every penny they can

This is absolutely the right thing to do and change . Better for humans, insects and our environment. Too many council’s are quietly using dangerous insecticide whilst preaching about the environment.

Nature needs to breathe, and councils need to save money. It's a 'win, win' ...

I don't think there is enough debate on achieving the right balance between wildlife value and recreational space for people

I'm not saying no management, but I am pushing for better planning of cutting regimes to get the balance right between maximising the diversity of flowering species (patches of longer grass are essential for this) and maximising the the amount of flowers and nectar produced (shorter patches for this). Rotational cutting is a yes, and later mowing in the autumn - we can't neglect later flying species!
