The Wilder Verges Project started in 2022, Brighton and Hove conducted a pilot lessening the mowing rate on 23 verges throughout the city. This boosted biodiversity by linking up nature, parks and gardens throughout the city to the Downs. Through the Wilder Verges project, new pollinator or downland plant species not previously recorded, were found on 70% of the sites in the first year.
