Will you commit to including support for wildlife corridors in your forthcoming guidance to the London Environment Strategy?

Yes. Guidance on the conservation of priority habitats and priority species is already in preparation and will be published later this year. This will include support for wildlife corridors and ecological connections between existing sites of importance for nature conservation and other areas of wildlife habitat.

My Greener City Fund is already supporting the management and improvement of green corridors. The third round of the community green space grant is currently open for applications until the 30th September. Guidance on making an application is available on the GLA website. Grants will be awarded at the end of this year for projects taking place during 2020.
