SEPTEMBER 2017 www.landscapeandamenity.com It is easy to feel more than a little cynical when a leading politician comes up with the next "great idea". In an age when grabbing headlines with soundbites seems to be the priority, we are often left scratching our heads when Government announces a new policy. Credit is due, therefore, to the Mayor of London. Not only has he come up with a headline-friendly "next big thing", but he has also provided a lot of detailed information on how he plans to pull off his attempt to develop London as the world's first National Park City. Of course, the announcement begged the immediate question – what exactly is a National Park City? But, thankfully, the Mayor provided a full answer. The devil is in the detail and the Mayor's plans are something every council in the UK should study closely. At a time when we are attempting to find ways to safeguard the long-term future of our parks and green spaces and secure sustainable funding and investment, the National Park City concept could well provide some crucial pointers for the rest of the UK. Along with many others, we will keep a close eye on the development of the National Park City concept and update in the coming months. Elsewhere in this month's issue we have a spotlights on a wide variety of product areas – from brushcutters to winter maintenance and ride-on mowers to estate management. With a number of major arboriculture events taking place in the next few weeks, Jane Carley turns her attention to forestry equipment. As the new rugby union season gets under way, we have an interview with the head groundsman at reigning PRO14 champions Scarlets, down in deepest West Wales. There is also the usual mix of product launches, industry news and opinions. Paul Groves, Editor Contents 02 SEPTEMBER 2017 www.landscapeandamenity.com Welcome...
