Don’t let the sun set on our parks

The coalition of countryside groups and environmentalists are lobbying government to protect the UK’s parks and green spaces, which are at “crisis point” following years of swingeing budget cuts.

 

The group has put forward a Charter for Parks that calls on ministers in England, Wales and Scotland to make it a legal requirement for all parks and green spaces to be maintained and managed to a good standard.

 

It also calls on them to recognise the right of every citizen to have walking distance access to a good-quality public green space.
