Petition Save Our Parks
Thousands of Britain’s parks and play areas are falling into disrepair or are under threat of being sold to developers.
This is despite the vital health and social benefits that our much-loved green spaces provide.
We support The Mail on Sunday’s campaign to Save Our Parks from being lost forever.
1) A statutory requirement for councils to ring-fence funding for parks at £30 per household per year.
2) There to be a legal duty for all green space to be managed to a good standard.
3) New rules banning the development on, or the inappropriate use of, parkland.
4) A new central Government fund to provide emergency help for parks most at risk and ensure the long-term future of Britain's green spaces.
