The Redington Frognal Area borders Kenwood House Quarry, a Regionally Important Geological and Geomorphological Site (GLA 42), which the London Plan seeks to protect and promote. It is situated on unstable soils (London clay, Claygate Member and Bagshot Formation) above a large body of underground water, including the underground River Westbourne (also known as the Cannon) and its tributaries, and the local authority is designated a “Lead Local Flood Authority”.
