Hefty fines for damaging verges

“Please don’t treat our verges like dirt”…. that’s the plea from conservationists and locals in the New Forest who are concerned about damage caused to verges.

Many of the verges in the New Forest have special legal protection due to their SSSI (Site of Special Scientific Interest) status.

Few people realise it but the law allows authorities to prosecute and convict anyone damaging protected verges, with a fine of up to £2,500.

National Park Authority Member, David Harrison says, “Some great work has been done by a volunteer Steering Group in the Western Escarpment area of the New Forest, both in helping protect these verges and educating the public.

I think this should now be extended to other parts of the National Park”.
