Full Council on 13 October 2021 resolved to request that Scrutiny Management Panel and the Transport, Environment and Community Safety Scrutiny Committee reviews all relevant policies and practices on urban biodiversity that might harm or undermine local ecosystems, such as grass cutting across the city, re-wilding on allotment plots to improve habitats for insects, including bees. In general, approaches should aim to positively contribute to re-wilding and support other approaches to re "greening" Portsmouth.
