Our commitment to conservation
We are fortunate to be one of the 'greenest' London boroughs, with parks, open spaces and private gardens covering 40% of Wandsworth.
There have also been a total of 1,600 different species recorded within 27 different habitat types in Wandsworth - so far! Several of these species are either rare or endangered - including peregrine falcons, black redstarts and stag beetles.
We are consequently committed to preserving such a rich environment. We have over 40 conservation areas and listed buildings in the borough and have developed a strategy for managing and protecting our trees.
