Parks and Open Spaces – Inquiry

After much lobbying and calls over the last 5 years for Government action to address the underfunding crisis threatening the UK’s green spaces, Parliament’s Communities and Local Government Select Committee has announced an Inquiry into the future of the UK’s public parks. The Inquiry will ‘examine the impact of reduced local… authority budgets on these open spaces and consider concerns that their existence is under threat … the Committee will look at how parks should be supported now and in the future.’
