The Corporation has long been aware that a clean environment, quality of life and economic prosperity go hand in hand.
In recent centuries, the Corporation has undertaken a series of initiatives designed to protect assets for generations to come. The purchase of Epping Forest and other land in the 19th Century not only meant that thousands of acres of open spaces could be saved from development - it was also the inspiration behind the Greenbelt policy that has protected other major British cities from urban sprawl.
Local Agenda 21 The start of a new phase in the Corporation's development, Local Agenda 21 signals a new approach to how we can serve the needs of our stakeholders. Litter, noise, increasing traffic, air pollution and climate change have brought about a realisation that in a global economy, the prosperity of the City and the quality of life of its residents and workers is inextricably linked to the way in which we treat our environment. The Corporation's green print for the future can be accessed from the publications page.
