Will you commit to including support for wildlife corridors in your forthcoming update to the All London Green Grid?

Yes. The existing All London Green Grid SPG already provides a spatial framework to support the conservation of the capital’s biodiversity and the enhancement of ecological resilience. This includes creating and strengthening wildlife corridors and ecological connections between existing sites of importance for nature conservation and other areas of wildlife habitat. This guidance will be updated following the publication of my London Plan early next year.

My Greener City Fund also supports the management and improvement of green corridors. The third round of the community green space grant is currently open for applications until 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.
