Why do we think it is important?

  • The Park has always, and will continue, to play an important role as a location for a range of urban infrastructure.
  • There is a universal need to mitigate the impacts of climate change. The Park has an important role to play by:
    • Managing increased flood risk
    • Conserving and enhancing scarce resources, in particular water resources
    • Offsetting urban heat island effects
    • Meeting the open space needs of a growing population
    • Make energy production, food production and waste management local
  • The Park has the potential to become a national model, showing how communities can be supported and sustained
    through effective management of open space, sport, leisure, recreation and nature conservation.
