A Public Parks Inquiry
Deadline for responses: 30 September 2016
The Communities and Local Government Committee has launched an inquiry into public parks to examine the impact of reduced local authority budgets on these open spaces and consider concerns that their existence is under threat. The committee looks at how parks should be supported now and in the future. This includes studying alternative management and funding models, such as a mutual or a trust. The committee invites submission of written evidence to its website.
