Lambeth Bee Roads

Lambeth Bee Roads is the council’s initiative to enhance street-side green spaces for both wildlife and people.

We will be taking a range of approaches to test different methods for increasing biodiversity in roadside spaces. 

In some sites, we will strip off high-fertility grass and soil before seeding wildflowers into an imported low-fertility substrate. In others, we will change the way we manage grass-cutting to help more flowers to grow.  

New rain gardens will also be created to temporarily hold rainwater from rooftops, which will reduce the risk of flooding and provide new wildlife habitats.

If you are a community group managing a street-side green space for biodiversity and you would like to join the Lambeth Bee Roads network, and have your site included on our new map, please contact us at
