Working with the Lord Mayor of Westminster

Supporting the Lord Mayor’s chosen charity partners, Carers Network and The Passage.

New West End Garden

In 2018 New West End Company and The Portman Estate created the ‘Wild West End Garden’ in partnership with Wild West End, Baker Street Quarter BID, Marble Arch BID and FM Conway.

‘New West End Garden’ was designed and produced by award-winning garden designer Kate Gould and was showcased at the 2018 RHS Chelsea Flower Show. The garden transformed an urban side street off Oxford Street into a people-friendly green space for workers, residents and visitors to enjoy.

The garden vastly improved the area showing an increase of 47% of people walking through the street and 64% increase in self-reported wellbeing by visitors.

In 2021 the garden was removed to make way for a more permanent feature and New West End Company donated the trees to the local community. The trees found happy homes in Portman Early Childhood Centre, Grand Junction community Centre and other projects elsewhere in London, including a permanent home for trees as part of the Westminster Bridge Road regeneration project in Lambeth.
