Extra £800,000 for East London Green Grid

A further £800,000 investment from the London Development Agency has been secured by the award-winning East London Green Grid

The initiative plans to create a network of open spaces connecting residential and employment areas to recreation space. The grid also aims to create settings for future development.

Projects supported include a £100,000 grant to link the Lower Lea Valley to the Lea Valley Regional Park.

More than 300 grid projects are being prepared by public bodies or as part of private developments, with a total of 1,321 programmed for work by March 2011.

Mayor Boris Johnson said: ‘I want to make our capital a greener and more pleasant place to live. This investment marks a significant boost to help deliver this ambition by creating a network of lush green spaces where nature can thrive to improve the quality of life for people in East London.’

The East London Green Grid won the 2008 Landscape Institute’s Presidents Medal and Strategic Landscape Project Award.
