FAQ

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?

A:

 

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?

A:

 

Yes.

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.
