Grass in six beauty spots in North Staffordshire will be cut less frequently from 2025 to improve the habitat of bees, butterflies, and other fauna. 

Instead of once every fortnight, grass will only be cut twice between March and October, as approved by a Staffordshire Moorlands District Council cabinet meeting which took place this week. 

The beauty spots in question are: 

  • Halls Road Recreation Ground, Biddulph 
  • Biddulph Valley Park, Biddulph 
  • Brough Park, Leek
  • Birchall Recreation Ground, Leek
  • Stanfield Crescent Playing Field, Cheadle
  • Land near Glebe Road and Brookhouse Way, Cheadle 

“The approach being proposed through this report is initially to reduce the mowing frequency on identified council sites to enable review and monitoring over the first year of changes (2025/26),” states a report from the council.
