Green grid to roll out across London
The grid, which is being tried out in east London, will create a ‘green infrastructure’ that will connect parks and open spaces across a number of boroughs.
Speaking to the AJ, Bishop said: ‘The green grid is something we’re very excited about – it contains a broad range of conceptual strategies right down to detailed interventions.
‘We think it is a framework, which could roll out across other parts of London. As a conceptual framework it is definitely applicable elsewhere in the city.’
The east London green grid does not have its own funding, and will rely on financing from both public and private sources.
