Brockley selected for Mayoral tree funding

Deptford blogger Caroline points out that New Cross, Deptford and Brockley are among the 40 London neighbourhoods prioritised in the Mayor's plan to add 10,000 trees to London's streets.

The release explains:

The Mayor also wants to encourage the 500,000 people living in these priority areas who would like trees outside their house, to register their interest online at This information will then be passed on to borough councils who, as a requirement for street tree funding applications, will be asked where practicable to plant their allocation of trees in areas where residents most want them. It is expected that 100-400 street trees will be planted in chosen locations across every priority area, so by registering online, residents will increase the chances of their streets getting some welcome greenery.

As this map shows, streets in north and west Brockley are eligible.

There is no news on when the Mayor' special fund for digicams will open.
