Chipps Hill Maintenance – Feb 2024

The roadside verge on Chipps Hill is a haven for wildflowers and associated fauna.

An audit of Chipps Hill in July 2023 revealed 63 different wildflowers. The habitat is struggling to compete with brambles and emergent scrub, especially blackthorn, which is spreading out of the hedges above the embankments.

Without maintenance, we will lose this valuable habitat to invasive growth and the wildflowers will disappear. Chipps Hill is listed on the ‘Bucks Potential Sites of Importance for Nature Conservation’.

The Parish Council has agreed with Buckland Landscapes to maintain Chipps Hill by cutting back the invasive growth to allow the wildflowers to flourish. This work will take place on Monday 5th February 2024.

Keep an eye out in the Summer for the wildflowers!
