London Borough of Sutton’s innovative response to the climate emergency

The London Borough of Sutton has contracted Groundwork London on an exciting project to develop a green space in the Borough at Limes Avenue Recreation Ground. We want to hear from you about what the space should look like.

As part of Sutton’s response to the climate emergency, we are working to improve Limes Avenue Recreation Ground to mitigate against extreme heat and high levels of rain leading to surface water flooding, while also meeting the needs of the local community and improving the appearance of the space.
