Protecting the borough's parks and open spaces

In 2014 the Labour Party made a manifesto commitment in their ‘The change we need’ document that if elected they would seek to afford the borough’s parks and open spaces with better protection.

This report seeks Cabinet approval enter an individual Deed of Dedication with Fields in Trust (where appropriate) to protect the borough's parks and open spaces.

This approach has been endorsed by both the Parks Commission and the Community Safety, Environment and Residents Services Policy and Accountability Committee.
