2013 Update – Fitzrovia Forest’s Future Steps

It’s been a busy 2012-13 season for planting in Fitzrovia and East Marylebone despite delays caused by the late release of subterranean infrastructure data.  Over 30 trees were planted in addition to the +210 added in the last few seasons.

Fitzrovia South - Newman St. Facing South from Eastcastle

Lots more still to do: Newman St. Facing South from Eastcastle Street

The Initiative is keen to see the last barren streets near the sizeable Middlesex Hospital, Berners Hotel and Rathbone Place redevelopment sites greened.  This will help neighbourhood streets that really need some TLC and also strengthen the impact of the Central London Green Grid project.

East Marylebone / Fitzrovia Planting 2012-13:

Riding House Street        pear                       3
Gildea Street                     pear                       4
Eastcastle Street              pear                      16
Langham Street               pear                      10
Great Portland Street     Liquid Amber       1

The Initiative has appealed to Westminster City Council to ensure that appropriate trees find appropriate homes on the streets which lie just north of New Oxford Street (listed below).

Possible future East Marylebone / Fitzrovia Streets for Planting:

Great Portland Street
Newman Street
Eastcastle Street (by Berners Hotel)
Berners Street    (by Berners Hotel)
Margaret Street
Riding House Street (by All Souls School)
Middleton Place (1 near University of Westminster)

All tree planting is subject to survey and local authority consent.
