Local estates in Myatt’s Fields will be among the first to benefit from Lambeth’s promise to plant thousands of trees across the Borough
Lambeth Labour have committed to plant more than 5,000 trees to enhance our communities and help address the climate emergency.
The ward’s Labour councillors have welcomed the initiative and pledged to lobby for more planting in the area.
New trees will appear on the Cowley estate, at locations including near Lauderdale and Garlinge Houses. Other sites include:
- Myatt’s Fields South estate
- Vassall Road
- Penford Road
- Templar Street
- Tindall Street
- Halsmere Road
Two new trees will also be planted in Myatt’s Fields Park.
Local Councillors Paul Gadsby and Annie Gallop said:
“We are delighted that twenty one new trees will be planted in Myatt’s Fields: new landscaping and green planting really helps enhance our local community, and, of course, plays its part in addressing the climate change emergency.”
“We are particularly pleased these tree planting plans come hot on the heels of other positive environmental announcements, including the Bees Road plan for the Knatchbull roundabout and the sustainable drainage scheme for Myatt’s South estate.”
“We will keep lobbying for further tree planting across our area in the years to come.”
