Urban greening and regeneration

Kent Thameside Green Grid Partnership

By providing a green setting for new development, the Kent Thameside Green Grid partnership is establishing a ‘green’ character at the heart of the largest urban regeneration scheme in Europe.

  •  the private sector who are incorporating trees and open spaces into new developments;
  •  environmental and community groups who are involved in creating and managing the green spaces;
  • local authorities who are providing supportive policies in local plans as well as funding and practical support.  
  • Contributes to RFF outcomes 1, 2 and 3
  • Partners: Countryside Agency, Kent County Council, Gravesham Borough Council, Dartford Borough Council, London and Continental Railways plc, University of Greenwich, Countryside Homes plc, Lafarge Cement plc, Land Securities Development.
