Last month, London Mayor Boris Johnson called on London's boroughs to submit their ideas for revamping and revitalising some of the capital’s unique public spaces.
The Mayor launched his Great Spaces initiative in March, as part of a range of measures to improve London's vast network of outdoor spaces and make the capital a more attractive place to live, work and visit.
Submitted projects will be considered for a share of £200,000 funding, as well as design and procurement advice and public recognition as an exemplar public space in London. Projects must be submitted by 31st July 2009.

Two past NLA programmes, 'Civilizing Spaces: Improving London's Public Realm', and 'Public City: Places for People' explored the change that has occurred in thinking about public city in the last decade, and examined a variety of inspiring public realm schemes planned for the capital.
