GREENING OF SUDBURY
The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has announced £1 million in ‘Green Grants’ to improve air quality.
Trees and plants play an essential part in reducing London’s dangerously polluted air, as well as being a vital part of our landscape.
Martin Page, Principal Landscape Architect Brent Council, invited STRA to participate in this very exciting ‘Greening’ Project. The grant will be match-funded by Brent Council. Community grants of between £5,000 and £50,000 are available. Martin will be submitting the application to City Hall before 29 September 2017.
On Saturday, 26 August 2017, STRA members met on Butlers Green – under the now-famous Red Tent – and pinpointed locations that the community feels are in need of ‘greening’.
Enthusiastic STRA members identified several sites that could benefit from the scheme. Listed below are a few of the highlights:
· Planters adjacent to the railway bridge each side of Harrow Road
· Butlers Green roundabout
· Station Approach
· Green patch outside Keelers Korner garage
· The kerb from Maybank to the end of Harrow Road (in the direction of Greenford)
· Disused tennis court between Compton Avenue and Vale Farm
· Butlers Green area around the abandoned toilets
· Sudbury and Harrow Road station entrance
We will keep you informed of further developments.
