An area 22 times the size of Hyde park has already been at least partially paved over in London as a result of front gardens being turned from grass to concrete. This loss of green space is having an impact on the environment, the attractiveness of the streetscene, and perhaps most worryingly on flooding risk in London. This report presents the first London-wide analysis of this problem, and makes recommendations for action by the Mayor, London Boroughs and the Government.
