Special Roadside Verges (otherwise known as Roadside Nature Reserves) are often remnants of old hay meadows and are recognised for their floristic diversity.
The Special Roadside Verges database for Essex is held and maintained by Place Services at Essex County Council. Volunteer surveyors survey the verges on an annual basis.
Essex Highways are responsible for verge maintenance. If you are concerned about the condition of a Special Roadside Verge or wish to report a problem please visit the Essex County Council website.
