Concerns about the future of small parks and open spaces will prompt a Green Party councillor to ask questions of the Labour Cabinet at City Hall on Wednesday.
Councillor Denise Carlo said:
“At a recent briefing for city councillors, an independent consultant floated the idea of the city selling off small areas of open space in order to fund maintenance of larger parks.
“It’s so important that Norwich maintains all its open spaces and keeps them for the benefit of residents. Small green spaces are needed for people to easily walk to. They also support biodiversity and help in the fight to stop our climate changing.
“Greens are also concerned about the loss of private open spaces across the city, from golf courses to sports fields and gardens. These areas are important as rainfall becomes less predictable.”
