Peaceful green havens to be created by London mayor

Peaceful green havens intended for residents to escape the urban buzz of the capital are to be created by London mayor Boris Johnson.

The mayor wants to encourage boroughs to enhance their tranquil spaces through their existing programmes and to help green the capital. Measures to reduce noise include promoting electric vehicles, revamping 11 parks, a public cycle hire scheme, planting 10,000 street trees and providing 2,012 new food growing spaces by 2012.
