During the London Environment Strategy consultation in 2017, many of you told us how much you love your local parks. We know it’s vital that London’s network of parks and green spaces continue to thrive as our city grows, but many parks services face funding constraints. As a result, the London Green Spaces Commission has been set up to help boroughs find solutions to help them run their park services.
The Commission is now working up recommendations for how London’s public parks can handle a growing population, our changing climate and public health concerns.
Do you know of a partnership or community group that has taken on responsibility for managing a park or green space? From you experience is this a good or bad way of managing parks?
Have you experienced any issues with these new approaches to managing parks?
Are you aware of any other successful approaches being taken to funding and managing parks?
