Special Roadside Verges provide an invaluable habitat for wildflowers and other native species across the county including a range of native species that are under threat elsewhere. Around 60 km of road verge across Essex have been designated as Special Roadside Verges.
Place Services works with a range of partners - including Essex County Council highways staff and its highway contractors; Essex Wildlife Trust and Saffron Walden Museum- to maintain these verges, ensuring that they are effectively managed and continue to support a wide range of species.
