The latest version of the Fitzrovia Forest document has just been released by ARUP and may now be downloaded from the link below. A number of recommendations made by local stakeholders and the community have been incorporated in this draft. An earlier version of the report was released in November 2011.
The purpose of the report is first and foremost to support tree grant applications for Westminster’s side of Fitzrovia. The document’s also seeks to identify a number of townscape and public realm interventions and to encourage local residents, businesses and organisations to support the implementation of these interventions. Camden Borough Council have similarly been preparing an Area Action Plan for their side of Fitzrovia.
Westminster Tree Trust – the W1W Tree Planting Initiative supports tree planting in Fitzrovia to balance its contribution to the streets of Marylebone. The Initiative applied for a grant from The Big Tree Plant to assist the development of the Fitzrovia Forest in March 2012. The updated Fitzrovia Forest document was included in the application package.
