Parks Action Group – Government organised focus group

The Government has set up the ‘Parks Action Group’ of key national green-space sector organisations (which the current LGSFGN chair sits on as the Chair of the National Federation of Parks and Green Spaces) chaired by the Minister for Parks, in response to the National Inquiry into the future of Parks.The direction of the Parks Action Group will be determined by park sector experts in co-operation with officials from a number of government departments. The Action Group will consider the recommendations from the government’s response to the report and propose new projects and actions that will help our parks and green spaces thrive.”

In parallel, to work with the Parks Action Group, the Government has set up a cross-departmental group of representatives of 8 key Government departments. The Mayor of London could and should implement a similar task force looking into the level and sources of funding required to address effectively the deepening crisis.
