Limerick City and County Council is currently undertaking a green space survey, to help guide the development of our next grass cutting contract.
LCCC is a partner to the All-Ireland Pollinator plan and one of the key actions is to alter the frequency of mowing. Changing the frequency of mowing allows wildflowers (food) to flower among the longer grass. This is the most cost-effective way to provide food for pollinators.
We are seeking the public’s opinion on alternative grass management regimes, we are considering leaving areas uncut for 6 weekly intervals and are seeking your views on this for your respective housing estates.
Please visit https://mypoint.limerick.ie/ and take our short survey.
Many thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback.
