Statutory obligation provide green spaces/parks.

How does this impact on Community Wellbeing? People leave their homes , go outside and meet other people. Leads to more positive outlook. Why should the Committee focus on this as part of their future work? It improves mental health and resilience.

Points

This should only have a focus if there is a guarantee to fund ongoing maintenance of parks and green spaces. In Glasgow for example these spaces are in poor condition.

Get people outdoors, breathing fresh air, break down isolation and where possible engage in productive community activity such as planting, litterpicking in which can take pride
