Legal duty to maintain parks will not be enforced

London Parks and Gardens Trust, which campaigns for the green spaces in London, said in their recent newsletter: We were dismayed to hear that the Government has indicated that it will not attempt to enforce a legal duty on councils to maintain local parks. Responding to a petition calling for changes to ensure councils ring-fence funding for parks maintenance, the Government said that it instead prefers to tackle the challenge through collaboration and the sharing of best practice. See a further petition which will force a parliamentary debate on the subject if 100,000 signatures are reached.
