A Greener Edgware Road

Edgware Road is many things but one thing that it’s not is Green. As you head north away from Marble Arch and the lush greenery of Hyde Park, the road becomes noticeably greyer until you reach Transport for London’s green wall outside Edgware Road underground station. 

In order to improve the green offering of the street, Edgware Road Partnership has commissioned a “Green Infrastructure Audit”. Carried out by Land Use Consultants (LUC), the study will identify opportunities for greening as well as audit existing green assets.

Greening is good for business. Increasing green infrastructure such as trees, parks, gardens, living roofs and green walls not only makes areas more attractive, but also helps urban areas to be more resilient to extreme weather events like heavy rainfall, and improves the environmental quality of the area by reducing pollution.

The study is set for completion at the end of February 2014.
