Thought for the Day

Following yesterday's #reimagineLondon event at the South Bank

“The statutory purpose of national park status is to ‘conserve and enhance the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of the area’ and ‘promote opportunities for the understanding and enjoyment of the special qualities of the park by the public. There is no reason we can’t apply these ideas in an adapted and appropriate way to the urban environment. London’s landscape is very different the countryside, but it is equally as distinctive and inspiring.’
