Yellow flowers marking wildlife verges have been erected across East Sussex.
There are around 165 wildlife verges in East Sussex which are not cut back between March 1 and August 21.
Signs have been erected around Eastbourne, Litlington and Seaford sparking debate on Facebook groups.
A spokesperson at East Sussex County Council said, “We have selected verges across the county known as wildlife verges, which have been identified as having rare species of wildflowers and mammals – these are marked with small yellow signs.
“To help maintain these habitats we do not cut our wildlife verges between March 1 and August 31.
“This allows for bird nesting season and for the wildflowers to seed.”
