The W1W Tree Planting Initiative has been in contact with Transport for London (TfL) seeking to mitigate the environmental impact of traffic of the Marylebone Road and Euston Roads on our neighbouring area.
The Initiative has been working to implement a Central Marylebone Green Grid in the area between Edgware Road and Tottenham Court Road. By the end of Spring 2012, the Initiative expects to have planted 500 trees in the area — many of these are within the boundaries of the Clean Air Fund corridor.
We hope that TfL will help fund further planting of trees along neighbourhood roads that are most impacted by the pollution of the Marylebone and Euston Roads.
Potential streets that could be planted – within 50 yards of the Marylebone Road:1. Lisson Grove 2. Seymour Place 3. Harewood Avenue 4. Upper Montagu Street 5. Balcombe Street from Marylebone Road up to Dorset Square 6. Gloucester Place- South of Marylebone Road 7. Gloucester Place- North of Marylebone Road 8. Baker Street 9. Allsop Place 10 Chiltern Street 11. Luxborough Street 12. Nottingham Place 13. Cleveland Street – west side of street
Further details regarding this development will follow.
