The resident-led Parks Commission launched in January 2020. Their final report was produced and approved by cabinet in December 2021.
Following a call for evidence from residents during spring 2020, the commission engaged widely with residents, park users and local communities, despite limitations presented by the Covid-19 pandemic.
The commission’s report made 22 practical headline recommendations concerning democracy and decision-making; how parks were maintained and used; how they were financed; and how green space and biodiversity were enhanced and protected.
For further background see item 5 on the Agenda for Cabinet, Monday 6 December 2021.
Our LET officers have replaced the parks police team and now carry out borough-wide patrols including parks. They have powers within the parks to enforce bye-laws and a duty to help keep the parks safe and welcoming places for everyone to enjoy.
See our Law Enforcement Team page for more information.
Barbecues and open fires are not allowed in any of our parks and open spaces unless part of an authorised event with special conditions. Unauthorised barbecues can result in burnt or scorched grass and they may reignite when disposed of without being put out properly.
