In July 2015, The Crown Estate, Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, Shaftesbury, the Howard de Walden Estate and The Portland Estate, announced that they had formed a unique collaboration to promote green infrastructure through an ecology project entitled ‘Wild West End’. The Crown Estate kick started Wild West End with the London Ecology Masterplan.

The masterplan targets were developed through consultation with the London Wildlife Trust, and target Westminster’s priority species. Through a holistic estate-wide approach, the masterplan provides a long-term, flexible strategy for enhancing landscape and ecological value through the delivery of multi-functional green infrastructure features that provide a range of ecosystem services. It links green spaces with new features to create a green corridor through the site.

Following the implementation of the masterplan, Arup’s project team have provided regular monitoring and quarterly reporting to track the success against the short term targets and review the projected trajectory towards the long term objectives.
