This report focuses on and highlights the importance of preserving playing fields and London’s green spaces for sport. In doing so it addresses three main themes:
- The strong links between the environment and health, and the importance of opening up access to London’s playing fields to achieve health benefits.
- The need to engage all sections of the community, including the sporting community in the debate on preserving London’s playing fields.
- The need to ensure that an appropriate planning framework is in place and that the current review of the Mayor’s Spatial Development Strategy, the London Plan takes account of any changes needed.
