A MARSH land area is to benefit from a £10 million project to rejuvenate London parks.

The Erith Marshes is to see improvements to access, biodiversity and protection of its grazing horses in a bid to raise the profile of the surrounding area.

The Thames Gateway Parkways Project will create a 'green grid' of parks in the region, the London Development Agency announced on Tuesday.

London Mayor Boris Johnson said: "The redevelopment of the Thames Gateway will only succeed if we create green and open spaces to enrich existing and new communities, attract investment and raise spirits." Parklands in Rainham, Lewisham, Dagenham and part of Lea River Park are also to be included in the project, first announced in the Thames Gateway Delivery Plan in 2007.
