High level of support for biodiversity in Dundee revealed by survey

AN overwhelming level of support for increased biodiversity across Dundee has been revealed by a survey conducted by the city’s council.

The survey – which received 550 responses and comprised nine questions – was carried out towards the end of last year.

Among the questions was: Do you agree that Dundee City Council should designate some parks and greenspaces as biodiversity grassland or naturalised grassland? It drew a 75 per approval rating, with 19 per cent of respondents disagreeing and the remainder not responding.

Other questions – here – focus on particular areas of the city.

Says the council, here: “The consultation process took place at the end of 2020 after the council received feedback from local people expressing their enjoyment at seeing longer grass in green spaces and the subsequent wildlife, following the suspension of grounds maintenance services due to the outbreak of COVID-19.”
