London has just half the green space it needs for a population its size. And yet there are many green spaces in London which are just sitting idle – at best ignored, at worst deliberately run down by owners and coming under threat from development.
These are amazing green and protected sites which have been undervalued, simply left doing nothing – but which local communities want to bring back into use and turn into major new parks – and we want to help them do that.Join us as we discuss plans to work with local groups, gain commitments from the Mayor of London and the relevant boroughs to transform these spaces into useful new parks. Some of these areas can become nature reserves; some can become improved sports facilities; some can be traditional parks. Some are so large they can be all of these.
Speakers: We will be joined by local campaigners from around London.
Our Ten New Parks for London are:
- East London Waterworks Park (Waltham Forest)
- Banbury Reservoir Park (Enfield / Waltham Forest borders)
- Quaggy River Sports Park (Lewisham / Greenwich borders)
