GLA announces £325k Green Capital Award for Silkstream Park project

Jon Sheaff and Associates have secured £325k in GLA Green Capital Funding for our project to refurbish Silkstream Park and Montrose Playing Fields in Colindale, north London. The funding will be directed at the naturalisation of the valley of the Silkstream and the installation of 300 new trees on site (including a new fruit orchard).

The funding will address the Mayor’s environmental priorities as expressed in the London Environment Strategy, including making London the UK’s first national park city, preparing the capital for the impacts of climate change and increasing the percentage of tree canopy cover across the city. The application also emphasised the parallel activity plan being delivered as a partnership between Barnet Council and Thames 21.
