Boris wants to ‘Help a London Park’

Northwest-map-parks The Mayor of London has launched ‘Help a London Park’, a  programme at designed to help him in his goal to protect London's ‘green spaces’.

The programme will allow Londoners to vote for their favourite most deserving parks to receive £400,000 of improvement work. The money comes from efficiency savings from the previous administration’s publicity budget.

Ten of London’s parks will be selected in the public vote, from a list of 47 to receive a share of the £6 million funding. The Mayor will also award a single grant of up to £2 million to one large park for a makeover. This grant will decided by the Mayor rather than by public vote, with advice of a panel of experts.

West London's representatives in the vote are:

  1. Brent River Park (London Borough of Brent)

  2. Brent River Park (London Borough of Ealing)

  3. Byron Recreation Ground

  4. Hammersmith Park

  5. Little Wormwood Scrubs Park

  6. Pinkwell Park

  7. Redlees Park

  8. South Park

  9. Southall Manor House Grounds

 

Londoners can vote to choose which parks get the £400,000 simply by going to www.london.gov.uk/parksvote. Voting closes on Friday 30th January 2009. Lookwest urges all its readers to visit and vote. Let's grab the cash for West London.
