Special verges

11 October 2011

Roadside verges provide a valuable habitat for a range of native plant and animal species that are under threat elsewhere. Over 100 sites across the county have been designated as Special Roadside Verges. Essex County Council works with a range of partners including Essex Wildlife Trust to maintain and manage these verges, ensuring that they are effectively managed and continue to support a wide range of species.


Further information is available in leaflet form, or can be obtained by contacting Essex Wildlife Trust or by contacting Essex County Council Natural Environment Team.
