Proposal made to complete Marylebone central tree grid by 2012

The Initiative has made a  proposal to Westminster City Council to plant seventy trees on nine Marylebone Streets during 2011-2012.   The resulting tree lines will complete our work on the Central Marylebone Green Grid.   Fund raising from the local community has now begun in earnest in order to help achieve this goal.

The streetscape of this area is mostly treeless and of a hard-built environment deprived of much open public space or greenery.   Within this area there are numerous educational buildings including various nurseries, schools, colleges and university facilities along with a number of churches and a synagogue.

The streets to the east and north of BBC’s Broadcasting House are within this scope of this planting scheme.  Furthermore, two hospitals are located on streets where plantings have been proposed.
