Natural Capital is becoming increasingly important as a method to place a value on the natural benefits that parks provide in terms of health, recreation, carbon capture, air quality and cooling. Here are some guides and reports on the subject and some of the accounts that have been prepared so far by councils and others.
Establishing additional revenue streams as well as revenue from local tax payers is becoming essential to ensure the long term sustainability of parks. Here are some reports and research from the UK and abroad into the many different opportunities.
How parks are provided is changing. Places are trying different models to deliver their parks that seek to establish financial sustainability whilst addressing the key social and environmental goals of their communities. Here are some examples.
