Thames Water has established two large Grow Zones covering over 3,400 square metres at the pumping station by Redbridge Roundabout.

“The areas will be left to flower and set seed throughout the summer months to create a meadow habitat supporting our declining pollinator and wild flower species,” explained a spokesperson. The Wild Wanstead project, Redbridge Council and Vision RCL have been collaborating to create a network of Grow Zones, sites where the grass is left to grow long to naturalise with wild flowers.
