City Gardens Update

Report of the Director of Open Spaces.


The Committee received a report of the Director of Open Spaces which provided an update on the City Gardens’ activities since April 2019.


Replying to a query from the Chairman the Director of Open Spaces confirmed that ‘Top Ten Trees in the City of London’ had been chosen by the Friends of the City Gardens.


It was explained by the Director of Open Spaces that Goldman Sachs were aware of the risks relating to planting outside of the recommended window at the development at Stonecutter street and that the decision to begin the planting at this time had been taken by the company at its own risk.


Members suggested that Committee visits to the City Gardens be arranged to allow Members to experience the gardens first-hand.


RESOLVED- That the report be noted.
