letter

  • The proposed cuts to Birmingham's Parks and Nature Conservation budget will have a detrimental impact on the quality and accessibility of the wonderful parks in our city. To secure these spaces for now and future generations there must be investment but it is not realistic to expect the funding to come solely from the decreasing local authority parks budgets. Everyone benefits from the natural spaces of our city. We need to start a conversation about a new way to fund the essential lungs of our city. Below is an open letter to Birmingham calling for this conversation to begin signed by 35 organisations including national, regional and community groups.

  • The following letter was sent by Simon King, President of The Wildlife Trusts, to David Cameron MP.
