Green roofs

Green roof map

Our green roof map below shows there are around 700 green roofs in central London alone, covering an area of over 175,000m2. That’s 17.5 hectares or around 25 football pitches!

Click on a green roof to see a short description of the green roof type and the estimate of the area it covers. You can also search by postcode and switch between a map and aerial photograph.

How did we do it?

The green roof map was produced by the GLA and the Green Roof Consultancy by studying aerial images of London taken in 2013 (by The Geoinformation Group).

Crowdsourcing – we need your help!

The map currently contains 678 known green roofs, but we are definitely missing some, including those that have been installed since the summer of 2013. Can you help us find more?

If you would like us to add a green roof to the map please email us at [email protected]. Or, if you would like to add more information about a green roof currently on the map – such as a photo, or links to a website with further details of the roof – then please click on the green roof on the map and the ‘email us’ link, which will open a new email window.
