I fully support the RSPB’s desire “to bring back the colour to the roadsides of East Riding by returning verges to their former glory”.
I fully appreciate the challenge ERYC have with maintaining the many grass verges and small areas of grass around the East Riding and believe the way forward is to work together.
I have requested ERYC give permission to establish The Oval Nature Reserve for wildflowers at the top of The Oval. This will be good for the environment, create a sea of colour, reduce maintenance costs and give upliftment to local residents.
I would be happy to work with the RSPB and local residents to move this forward at no cost to ERYC.
Local residents fully support my request.
