GLA Survey of London’s Green Spaces

Despite being one of the largest urban areas in Europe, almost two thirds of London is made up of green spaces and more than 1300 sites are recognised as being of value to wildlife. What do Londoners want from their green spaces? And could more be done to support and protect biodiversity in them?

Our Environment Committee wants to hear your views on the state of London’s green spaces and the importance of the urban wildlife – plants, insects and animals – supported within them. We want to know what your priorities for green spaces – large and small – are, and if you’ve seen any changes in your local area. Also, are the Mayor and others doing enough to support and protect biodiversity and green areas? People can access the survey here.

We would be grateful for comments by 4 September, so they can feed into the Committee’s September meeting, where Members will investigate concerns that green areas may come under pressure from development, reductions in public funding and fewer staff within local boroughs to manage or protect them.
