Bristol is planning to go ahead with a ‘wild Eden’ project, containing a Tanzanian savannah, Georgian wetlands, and a Costa Rican swamp.
A spokesperson for the London Borough of Waltham Forest said this was ‘obviously stealing an idea we came up with a long time ago.'
Waltham Forest’s ‘wild Eden’ project involves letting walking and cycling routes revert to their original ‘wild’ state.
