Green Issues - Vertical Gardens and Green Roofs

The Athenaeum Hotel (Top)
Anthropologie (Below)

West End Ward has comparatively little open space. I have been working,  both as ward councillor and Chairman of the Go Green Task Force with others to look at ways of improving air quality, visual aspects and sustainability.

I will be encouraging green roofs and vertical gardens. We already have some excellent examples at the Athenaeum Hotel and at Anthropologie of how greenery can be introduced. Proposals to create green roofs at Kemp House in Soho and Howard House in Fitzrovia are in place.

The new development at Ham Yard will include bees on the roof and we are looking at protecting and encouraging bees and birds to live in the parks and open spaces.
