London’s Natural Signatures

Thumbnail image of publication cover.

This is a framework to re-establish the relationship between the built and the natural aspects of London. Unsurprisingly London is characterised more by its townscapes and buildings than by its natural landscapes. This report was produced to help reconnect Londoners with the underlying, and often hidden nature of the city, and to create new local identities based on the geology, ecology and landforms of London. The aim is to have a tool that can help planners and developers reflect the natural landscapes more clearly when regenerating and renewing the capital. Due to its size, the London’s Natural Signatures report is broken down into sections.
