Westminster boasts a wealth of green assets – from parks and gardens to green infrastructure including living walls and roofs – and the council is proud to be custodian of some of the most recognisable open spaces in London, and the country. The city also supports a rich and diverse range of wildlife, with scores of different insect, bird, animal and aquatic species represented.
In March 2019 they published their open spaces and biodiversity strategy – A Partnership Approach to Open Spaces and Biodiversity in Westminster - which sets out why the council believe these assets are so valuable, recognising the myriad benefits they bring to Westminster as a place and as a community, and setting out how with their partners, will seek to protect, promote, enhance and make the most of them.
