Answer for London Plan - All London Green Grid

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The All London Green Grid provides the strategic framework for the delivery of green infrastructure in London, supported by London Plan policy.

The projects identified in the All London Green Grid Area Framework are delivered by a wide range of partners and through a variety of funding mechanisms, including, for example: Borough parks development programmes; Heritage Lottery Fund programmes (eg the Landscape Partnership in the Wandle Valley); Transport for London Local Implementation Plans, and resources from regeneration and development secured through planning obligations. GLA officers provide support to secure these resources and will continue to do so.

I have committed direct funding of £16m over my term of office through 'Help a London Park', 'Big Green Fund' 'Pocket Parks' and my street tree programme. I will continue to provide financial support for ALGG delivery.
