In 2022 the Network put together a Manifesto for Barnet’s Parks and Green Spaces.

The Labour Party (who subsequently won the election and lead the current Council) in their own Manifesto stated,

“We will support the Barnet Green Spaces Network Manifesto, and work with them to deliver it.”

The key demands by the Network were:

  • Protect ALL existing greenspaces in the Borough.
  • Increase funding and resources for Barnet’s Green Spaces.
  • Expand the provision and extent of green spaces in the Borough.
  • Introduce a Borough wide ranger service to maintain our spaces.
  • Support and promote Friends Groups for each green space.
  • Increase biodiversity, aim for clean rivers and streams and develop green space skills.

The Network intends to hold the Council to account on these pledges and will be producing regular reports on progress on the contents of our manifesto and how they are progressing.
