Protecting the unique status and value of The Royal Parks

LUC has provided planning, landscape architecture, management and ecology consultancy services to The Royal Parks for nearly 40 years, contributing everything from ecology surveys and enhancement strategies to giving planning advice on development proposals. We know the 2,000 hectares of historic parkland as well as anyone.

We have worked on all of London’s eight Royal Parks, as well as Victoria Tower Gardens, Brompton Cemetery and Grosvenor Square. We have designed and overseen the implementation of a broad range of award-winning commissions including:

  • Restoration of Avenue Gardens, Regent’s Park
  • Restoration of Grosvenor Square, including September 11th Memorial Garden
  • The Diana Princess of Wales Memorial playground, Kensington Gardens
  • Restoration of the Water Gardens, Bushy Park
  • Greenwich Park avenue restoration
  • Design and implementation of the Tamsin Trail, Richmond Park
  • Event landscape management and infrastructure of Parade Grounds, Hyde Park
  • Greenwich Park Playground
  • Mitigation of Olympics Greenwich Park
  • Isabella Plantation Access Improvement Project

Our ecological support for The Royal Parks has included:

  • Protected species surveys, in particular for bats, to inform numerous building renovation and redevelopment projects
  • Vegetation surveys to inform habitat management, including for the Longford River and Richmond Park Special Area of Conservation/Site of Special Scientific Interest
  • Park Special Area of Conservation/Site of Special Scientific Interest
