Biodiversity in Conwy County

Some roundabouts, road verges and grassland areas in Conwy County which are rich in native wild flowers will be left undisturbed over the summer to encourage biodiversity.

Conwy County Borough Council is continuing to show its commitment to biodiversity by leaving these areas to grow over the summer to attract bees, butterflies and birds to the area, and cutting after flowers have set seed in late summer.

Pollinators including bees, butterflies, moths and beetles are in decline and they are essential to pollinate crops, soft fruit, orchards, and wild and garden flowers.

The Council has more than 40 biodiversity areas and 21 nature reserves which are managed to encourage pollinators. It has taken action like replacing seasonal bedding plants with herbaceous, perennial plant schemes which provide a food source for pollinators.

Cllr Greg Robbins, Cabinet Member for Environment and Transportation, said, “The Council takes its role and responsibilities for biodiversity very seriously. Managing areas to encourage wildlife is an important way to make sure we can support pollinators to thrive and help contribute towards a sustainable environment.”
