Llandaff Fields To ‘Grow Wild’

Llandaff Fields

Llandaff Fields are set to become part of a ‘pollinator project’, designed to encourage biodiversity and protect important wildlife across the city.

The park is one of sixteen open spaces that have been chosen for the project, which will be left to ‘grow wild’.

The fields are home to wildflower species that need protecting, and that means that the fields will only be mown once a year.

Cardiff council’s cabinet member for environment, councillor Bob Derbyshire, said pollinators such as bees and butterflies have been in decline in recent years.

He said: “These pollinators are a familiar part of our warm summer days but more importantly they play a key role in our food supply chain.

“If their numbers continue to decrease then it could have potentially serious consequences.”

The other areas chosen are Fairwater Park, Hendre Lake, Glastonbury Terrace, Colwinstone Road, Westfield Park, Sanatorium Road, Wiggins Teape, Drope Open Space, Melfa Banks, Pant Glas, Youghal Close, Central Park, Trelai Park, Parc Coed Y Nant and Wern Goch.
