London's Great Outdoors
Green infrastructure and open environments: The all London green grid. Supplementary planning guidance, published by the Mayor of London in March 2012, suggests that: ‘The Mayor’s manifesto for ‘London’s Great Outdoors’ details the Mayor’s vision to transform the everyday experience of London’s outdoor spaces and create beautifully designed public and open spaces throughout the capital’s urban fabric. It is the umbrella initiative for two practical programmes: ‘Better Streets’ and ‘Better Green and Water Spaces’. Allocated projects include improvements to local neighbourhood parks all across London to reclaiming London’s waterways and redesigning local high streets and town centres.’
