Minutes:

Matthew Davies led Committee through the Merthyr Tydfil Nature Recovery Action Plan – First Annual Review 2020-2021 report.

 

The following comments and questions were raised by Committee and answered in detail by the Officers:

 

·       Have you had a chance to meet with all Wards to discuss the grass cutting programme?

·       Where we are now – What are the unfulfilled actions?

·       Grassland Management – What exactly what will be done at these sites and will this policy apply to roundabouts?

·       Ecological surveys – what will we see with the chosen six sites?

·       Have you looked at working with community groups?

·       Acknowledging the work that goes into wild flower planting.

·       Para. 6.2 – What actions will you do to go above and beyond?  What are other Local Authorities doing and is there a local authority that you are particularly impressed with and if so, what are they doing?

·       Signs installed in the six priority areas  - signs are really good, tells people what is happening and explains why grass not being cut.  Suggestion that a map be added showing areas that won’t be cut.

·       Looking forward to seeing this project move forward and the benefits it will bring to the community.
