London Mayor launches bid to create world's first National Park City

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has today unveiled the first London-wide Environment Strategy , featuring a new £9m 'Greener City Fund' to transform the capital into the world's first 'National Park City'. Speaking this morning in Hackney, Khan promised that by 2050 more than 50 per cent of London's surface area would be green - a promise he said would be met by significantly boosting the use of green roofs and walls in new developments and improving the quality of existing parks and gardens.
