This week we launched 4 of our new community Parklets on Hammersmith Grove, 2 of them even had 3m high Green Pergolas.
Combining trees and plants with wooden benches and cycle parking, these 4 10m by 2.5m Parklets are designed to encourage cycling, improve air quality and make the street greener for residents, shoppers and businesses. They’re also part of a borough-wide plan to support and encourage biodiversity in the area.
Leader of H&F Council, Cllr Stephen Cowan, said at the opening last week that they are “working to make H&F the greenest borough in the country” and “these parklets not only offer green respite for workers and shoppers, but also provide vital food and homes for wildlife; so it’s great to see people, bees and butterflies are already using them.
“By providing better facilities for cyclists, and making it more pleasant to be out on foot in our town centres, the parklets are also helping to improve our air quality, so everyone stands to benefit.”
The Hammersmith Grove Parklets also incorporates new electric vehicle charging points.
The new project in Hammersmith Grove was supported with financial backing from HammersmithLondon BID, Medidata and the Mayor of London.
"The parklets project is a great opportunity to make our office surroundings greener and to give back to the H&F community," said Christian Hebenstreit, Medidata General Manager & Senior Vice President EMEA.
Our Parklets have boosted trade to local businesses such as coffee shops and restaurants by 30%
