At Parks for London, we love London’s parks and green spaces, and work with the people that manage, maintain and enjoy them. Our mission is to ensure that London has a strong network of parks and green spaces, that are of high quality, safe, accessible, thriving, stimulating and beautiful spaces.
Our vision is a London that is a healthy and sustainable world city; a place where parks and green spaces make a major contribution to the health and wellbeing of Londoners and to the environment in which they live and work. .
As such, we are calling on all of London’s candidates for the 2018 Council elections to support parks and green spaces in their borough by:
1. Protecting and safeguarding parks and green spaces from loss or unwanted development
2. Managing and maintaining parks and greens spaces to best practice standards
3. Committing adequate long-term resources for management, maintenance and improvements
4. Encouraging community and volunteer engagement in all areas, with specific reference to the health and well-being agenda
5. Collaborating and cooperating across all London Boroughs to protect and promote our parks and green spaces
We would be delighted if you were willing to support our calls for action as you campaign ahead of the Local Elections. Please look out for our tweets this week@parksforlondon and please do tweet and retweet to show your support & get the message out.
