Meadow Management

During the mid 90's the Beckenham Place Park Working Party was formed and one of the early achievements was the drawing up of a Management Plan for the environmental features of the Park. Woodland management and Grassland management were significant subjects addressed. Certain areas were identified as being suitable for the revival of Meadow Grassland whereas they were currently close mown amenity grasslands. The frequent mowing did nothing to promote biodiversity of flora or fauna. Over several years now and some setbacks some success has been achieved in promoting a twice yearly mowing regime, leaving some margins uncut and designating meadow areas interspersed with amenity space (mown areas for games).
