The GLA is encouraging community organisations and venues to register cool spaces to contribute to its London-wide map. Cool Spaces are indoor spaces and outdoor areas where Londoners can take respite on hot days. 

Identified spaces will be grouped into one of three tiers:

  • Tier 1 has the greatest number of minimum amenities, including free drinking water, toilet facilities, and other amenities, that Londoners can expect from a cool space
  • Tier 2 has the second greatest number of minimum amenities
  • Tier 3 includes outdoor green and blue spaces which, although not providing the minimum amenities for tiers 1 and 2, provide suitable conditions for the public to access shade from heat.

Click here to register a space. To submit multiple outdoor spaces please send an email.
