Here are some answers to some frequently asked questions about making London a National Park City.

How will the Greater London National Park City be funded?



No funding is being asked for from London's councils or central government. The National Park City Partnership will be funded through a mixture of private giving, corporate giving and corporate services.  

The Partnership will start off as a small organisation and grow over time. Eventually it may cost around £4 million a year to run. This is about the cost of running a rural National Park or a medium-sized secondary school. It is £3 million a year less than Santander is spending on sponsoring London's bike hire scheme and is similar to the annual maintenance cost of the proposed Garden Bridge.

Can London really become a National Park City?




If at least two-thirds (436) of London’s 654 wards, the Mayor of London and the London Assembly declare their support. You can find out which wards have declared their support here.
