Restoring Shropshire’s Verges Project

What are we aiming to do?

RSVP has the following aims and objectives:

Bring together people interested in restoring road verges to flower-rich grassland

  • Undertake survey and mapping work to establish the status and location of verges
  • Encourage and support local interest in restoring verges
  • Actively promote verge restoration in general and the work of RSVP specifically
  • Undertake practical management of a series of demonstration road verges in the area
  • Campaign and lobby for a positive change in road verge management policies
  • Lead one or more pilot projects looking at the use of verge clippings in biodigesters
  • Liaise with the county council, town/parish councils and contractors to develop plans for verge restoration throughout Shropshire
  • Engage with wider organisations, schemes and campaigns focused on verge restoration.
