The GLA (Greater London Authority) and Groundwork London are working with local partners to develop and implement the concept of a regional park running from the Thames through the boroughs of Wandsworth, Merton, Sutton and Croydon, to Croydon town centre. The Wandle Valley is identified as a Regeneration Corridor in the London Plan and the identified regional park opportunity will assist in the redevelopment of the area, contributing to improving the quality of the environment and as a place to work, live and visit.
This regional park is identified in both the current London Plan and the draft Replacement London Plan. While the focus of the park is along the river corridor and the adjacent open space network, it will also spread out to town centres, business areas and residential areas through green links. This network of green infrastructure is a key element of addressing the Mayor’s objectives for London to be a greener city.
The GLA are taking part in the C-Change Expert Joint Planning Group 3. Together this group are investigating how well do spatial planning strategies prepare our city regions to mitigate and adapt to climate change?
The Wandle Valley Regional Park now has five working groups which support the development of the park, one of which is focused on climate change. Visit the Wandle Valley Regional Park website for more information.
