• Save and Protect UK Parks

    More and more people call for action to address the underfunding crisis

    Promote the Save Our Parks petition

    The Government’s cuts to Local Authorities for our local public services, combined with the lack of statutory protection for open spaces, are causing the most of the problems we are facing. So please sign the UK ‘Save Our Parks’ petition to step up the pressure on the Government and all political parties to take seriously the future funding and protection of our vital green spaces.

    CUTS CONTROVERSIES: Thousands of parks’ officers and members of local Friends Groups will be expressing alarm, speaking out and lobbying their Local Authorities to protect next year’s parks budgets. The underfunding crisis for our wonderful green spaces deepens as Councils face further, heavy, general budget cuts throughout the UK. Parks services are particularly under threat as, incredibly, they are not a statutory obligation for Councils.
