Vote to Fund the Duke's River
Support local accessible green riverside walks
The London Mayor's Big Green Fund has £900,000 to invest in local green spaces. Seven projects are up to win the grant with the local Duke of Northumberland's River project being one of them.
This river, which is in fact a built waterway, links the River Crane with the River Thames along 4km of traffic free paths, from West Twickenham to Old Isleworth, passing rugby grounds and the delights of Mogden.
FORCE, or Friends of the River Crane Environment would use the £400,00 they are applying for to improve the riverside walk, with better paths and signage along with leaflets. Work would be done to protect and enhance the environment for the continued development of wildlife.
Councillor Sachin Gupta, Hounslow Council’s Cabinet Member for Public Health and Leisure, explains: “The Duke’s River improvements will help the Crane Valley Partnership realise their ambition to create an exciting ten kilometre circular riverside walk linking the Crane, Thames and Duke’s Rivers. But to achieve their ambition we’re urging people to vote for the project at Big Green Poll before 2nd March".
