Join us and our GLA partners for an informative seminar on the All London Green Grid (ALGG).  City Hall will host a series of seminars and workshops to look at delivery and promotion of the ALGG themes. Starting in October, the first group of seminars will cover greening streets, biodiversity, greening social housing, woodland management and community clean ups.

We'll be sharing the lessons learned from transforming Redcross Way - just south of Union Street, one of the first Bankside Urban Forest projects to be implemented back in 2010.  This busy community street, linking Borough tube station to Borough Market, also sits in the middle of two parks, two housing estates and passes by two schools.  It was previously a difficult street for pedestrians to navigate, with narrow pavements, and deep kerbs making it particularly challenging for parents bringing their children to school.

Bankside Urban Forest brought together the Council, Transport for London, the Forestry Commission and other agencies to secure funding to transform the street into a pedestrian friendly and green environment.  Join us at this seminar to hear how the project came about, and the benefits that it has brought to the neighbourhood.
