NEW LONDON AWARDS 2021

Shortlisted in the PLACEMAKING Category and for the WELLBEING Prize

The prevalence of green public space in the city has never been as important as it is now for health and wellbeing.

The history of this unique green space, a former burial ground of the church adjacent to Westminster Abbey, stretches back to the 13th Century. A public open space since the 1950s in recent years it suffered from failing planting, lack of seating, anti-social behaviour and barriers limiting its accessibility

The transformation of Christchurch Gardens has created a welcoming new public realm that balances the past with the present and invites people to explore, enjoy and learn.
