The full list of green spaces in Harrow included in council’s new programme

Harrow Council has launched a new programme to change the way green spaces are managed in the borough during No Mow May.

Following the success of last year’s trial, selected green verges and park sites will now be left to grow and cut less frequently during the growing season.

The move is expected to benefit the natural environment, with longer grass providing an important habitat for invertebrates and other wildlife, while promoting the growth of wildflowers that serve as important food sources for pollinators like bees and butterflies.
