The London Green Spaces Commission met for the first time on 1st April 2019. It has 14 commissioners, who will work over the next 12 months to develop new models for the delivery and management of London’s green infrastructure. The aim of their work is to help support London boroughs to transform how their parks services are managed and funded, so that they can maintain or increase investment in parks and green spaces, in the context of substantial and ongoing constraints imposed on public sector funding.
Parks for London is pleased to support the work of the LGSC and prepared a briefing report, with Dr Meredith Whitten: ‘A review of London’s parks and green spaces: strategy, governance and value’ and attended the first meeting of the LGSC to provide additional information.
