Arup has won a Landscape Institute Award (LIA) for their work on The Crown Estate London Ecology Masterplan.

Their win under the Landscape Science, Management and Stewardship category saw recognition of the development of an estate-wide approach to ecology and green infrastructure for Regent Street and St James’s in Central London.

The Crown Estate London Ecology Masterplan by Arup and the Crown Estate created plans for this fabulous green corridor through central London, holistically improving the experience of local residents and commuters. Benefits will include enhanced biodiversity, improved air quality, reduced heat island effect, increased storm water retention and a more visually attractive environment.

So the Crown Estate, Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, Shaftesbury, the Howard de Walden Estate and The Portland Estate had a unique collaboration to promote green infrastructure through an ecology project entitled ‘Wild West End’. 

Consultations were carried out with the London Wildlife Trust to assist in a holistic estate-wide approach whereby the masterplan could provide a long-term strategy to enhance landscape and ecological value through a range of ecosystem services.
