Have your say on the future of Lambeth Parks

VolunteerWe know you love Brockwell Park – and all the other parks and green spaces in Lambeth!

We believe that maintaining parks and open spaces is vital to all who live and work in Lambeth. More people use parks and open spaces than any other service Lambeth provides.

The Parks’ budget will be cut by half – from £4.4m a year to £2.2m by 2016.

You can do something –there are two different ways you can let Lambeth know what you think about their proposals. Lambeth want to know what you think – but if you don’t support your park in either of the ways listed below – then they will hear that parks don’t matter that much.

1. Respond to the consultation

The Public Consultation ends on Friday 24 April. So you need to go online lambeth.gov.uk/culture2020consultation and fill in the questionnaire; and get your friends to do the same. Each person who fills it in counts – each person who doesn’t will get the decisions made for them by Lambeth.

You can get a hard copy of a summary “Cultural Services by 2020” from your local Lambeth Library. It has the questionnaire in so you can fill it in that way and then post it – or hand it in at any library.

Please respond to the consultation and say why safe and well-maintained parks are a vital service. We don’t want to see the improvements that have taken place in the last 20 years – lost.

2. Attend a Parks workshop

The Parks Workshop – come along! This takes place on:

Saturday 21st March – 11am – 1pm

at

The Karibu Education Centre

7 Gresham Road, London

Brixton SW9 7PH

There will be Lambeth Councillors and Officers waiting to hear what you think. The Libraries Workshop was jam-packed with supporters – we have to achieve the same.

The Parks belong to all of us – so fill in the questionnaire and come to the workshop.
