New Parks Commission seeks your views on how to protect our green spaces

Residents and community groups are being invited to attend the first meeting of a new commission to safeguard H&F’s parks and green spaces for future generations.

Hammersmith & Fulham Council’s new Parks Commission meets for the first time at 7pm in Hammersmith Town Hall on Tuesday 17 January.

The newly-formed group has been created to ensure that the borough’s many parks and green spaces are protected for future generations, including any threat from developers.

“We want to be the greenest borough in the country so it’s imperative we stay true to our promise to be custodians of our prized green spaces,” said Cllr Guy Vincent, Chair of the Parks Commission.

“This commission will work closely alongside our stakeholders to explore how we continue to keep our parks preserved for the enjoyment of local residents.

“We welcome anyone interested, particularly from local groups and organisations, at Tuesday’s meeting, so please come along and share your views.”

The Parks Commission will meet several times in the first few months of 2017.

Tuesday’s meeting will be used to discuss various ways to protect the borough’s parks in the future – particularly from the threat of major development.

Options that arise from that meeting and any subsequent recommendations will be reviewed in the following sessions.

Tuesday’s meeting will take place in the Small Hall. To attend call Heather Miller on 020 8753 5090, or email: heather.miller@lbhf.gov.uk.
