Green space on TfL land

Meeting:

Mayor's Question Time

Date:

Wednesday, 19 October 2016

Reference:

Question 2016/3922

Main question

Andrew Dismore

Does TfL have a strategy to utilise the large amounts of unused green spaces on land they own, such as near stations, by making them available for 'guerrilla gardeners', such as the community garden at East Finchley Station?


Answer

The Mayor

I want to be the Mayor who makes London one of the world's greenest cities and I am committed to protecting and enhancing biodiversity in urban spaces where this can be done.

TfL is already working with some groups such as Energy Garden and the Bee Friendly Trust to take forward community garden projects and is happy to look at further requests.
