The Local Government Association is a member of the ‘Parks Action Group’ and works closely with officials in my Department to discuss activity to safeguard and enhance parks and green spaces for future generations. As the Minister with responsibility for parks and green spaces, I intend to meet with the ‘Parks Action Group’ early this year.
