Redbridge Green Urban Landscape Policy

Closes 15 Jan 2021

Opened 13 Nov 2020

Overview

Redbridge Council is working on a Green Urban Landscape policy that will create a plan for managing and improving Council greenery across the borough. Greenery includes trees, shrubs (bushes), planters (flower beds on the street) and grass areas. These natural assets are very important in an urban area like Redbridge. They provide spaces for us to enjoy being in nature, spaces that encourage outdoor activity, allow people to meet, and improve our well-being. In addition, if managed well, they can provide healthy spaces for wildlife to flourish and adapt to climate change. Ultimately, greenery is a key element of what makes a neighbourhood attractive and a nicer place to live in and we’d really like you to help shape this policy.

This policy will update the old tree policy from 1996 and seeks to unify our approach to greenery across the Council. This policy is just one step on a journey to improving the environment within Redbridge and will be followed up by action plans for other natural resources such as rivers and waterways.
