Save on London Attractions and enjoy the city's public places
Published: Wednesday 18th of November 2009
The Mayor of London Boris Johnson has announced plans to transform London's public spaces to make them more enjoyable for both residents and those visiting the city and London attractions.
"I want to work with the boroughs and other bodies to shape and breathe new life into London's public spaces. This means creating a network of well designed and enticing outdoor areas, which increase our city's popularity as a place to live in, visit and invest," said Mr Johnson.
London's Great Outdoors - A Manifesto for Public Space details how over £220 million is to be invested in the next three years in more than 50 projects which include redesigning streets, planting trees and reclaiming green spaces.
Last month the mayor announced that up to 4,000 new trees are to be planted in London by next spring as part of the Street Trees project, which has already seen 1,500 trees planted in ten of London's boroughs.
