London Assembly seeks views on future of capital's green space - UPDATED

Please note new link to survey below

The London Assembly is asking Londoners for their views on the future of the capital’s green space, amid development issues and reduced public funding.

The Assembly’s Environment Committee wants to know what people consider the main priorities for the capital’s green spaces, any positive or negative changes they have noticed and whether they think the GLA and borough councils are doing enough to protect biodiversity and support green space.

Environment committee chair Murad Qureshi AM said: "London’s tall buildings and large paved squares are only one aspect of its landscape, as there are also green spaces throughout the capital, each of which can be home to an array of animals, birds and plants.

"We want to know how these areas are coping in the face of pressures that come as London’s population expands and if enough is being done to protect them. We really hope people will take part in our survey so we can find out from people how London’s wildlife is faring in their communities and what really matters to them when it comes to managing our green spaces."

The survey is available online until 4 September here or go to
