Objectives

Our vision for London is as a green and vibrant world city. The challenge is for better use of land and wiser stewardship of natural resources. We aim to bring the benefits of the countryside closer to people’ doorsteps so we can improve the quality of life for more Londoners. To do this we are encouraging a stronger sense of place, with better urban design, good quality of life with lower carbon emissions and less waste. Specifically, our strategic aims are to encourage and support:

•  Policies and plans to protect  and improve the London Green Belt, Metropolitan Open Land and other green spaces;
•  Better use of London's land including the supply of affordable homes and the delivery of  good design for all;
•  Promotion of London’s  green spaces for people to visit, discover and enjoy.

Activities

  • Exposing the scale of threats to green spaces in London and persuading politicians to take action
  • Finding ‘Space to Build’ – researching and demonstrating to Local Authorities how we can make better use of unused & wasted land for housing
  • Helping local groups fight and win campaigns
  • Collaborating with to publish the first ever “London Boroughs Healthy Streets Scorecard” to encourage more sustainable modes of transport
  • Launching  ‘Go Parks’ London Initiative supporting the activities of dozens of Parks Friends Groups
  • Campaigning to create at least ten new parks in London from sites which are protected but which are unloved and not well-used.
  • Developing ‘Tranquil London’ – promoting urban tranquillity for health and wellbeing
