Thanks for your interest and yes how we manage public perception is a key issue. One detailed example is the fact there is now little revenue for ongoing grass cutting in the county such as on highway verges which do need cutting especially on visibility sight lines. We are running some experiments with semi parasitic wildflowers which we hope will reduce the fertility of the grasses and add some biodiversity benefits. We are also hoping the find funds to trial topsoil removal down to mineral subsoil/rock. The area we cover is the whole of the county of Dorset. The link below goes to our interactive map of the county which I hope helps give you an idea of our area.
