We will look to increase the current predominant pollen and nectar sources within the site. These are currently provided by scrub and the small area of flower-rich grassland upon the track within the western half of the site.
We will increase the area of flower-rich grassland in place of 50% of the existing area of ruderal scrub. We will also seek to eradicate problem species such as dock and creeping thistle.
We will employ a first-year management plan to help seedlings establish. We expect the wildflower and grass species to take a full year to establish due to their slow-growing perennial lifecycle. Rapid growth of weeds will be controlled following sowing of seed by regularly cutting to a height of approximately 5cm whilst perennial wildflowers establish beneath this cut height.
