The long-awaited Commons inquiry report into the future of parks and green spaces was always likely to generate a great deal of reaction. The fact that the committee of MPs highlighted the importance and wider community benefits of adequately funded and properly maintained parks and spaces won universal acclaim. However, the dire warning of a very bleak future for those spaces unless Government acts quickly and decisively merely confirms the worst fears of the industry as a whole. It is clear we need a plan of action that involves all those stakeholders – both at a national and local level – who are fighting hard to create a brighter future for our parks. Management by committee is always tricky, but that isn't necessarily what is required. Our parks and green spaces need a clear, concise and universally agreed programme of investment and support that will create a lasting legacy. We support the various bodies and local authorities campaigning hard to ensure the inquiry report leads to a more positive and co- ordinated approach to managing our parks and green spaces.
