Urban green nation
Building the evidence base
No one knows exactly how many green spaces there are in our urban areas, where they are, who owns them or what condition they are in. Our new report starts to fill this information gap.
Urban green nation: building the evidence base starts to fill the serious green information gap, by compiling and analysing data at a national level. The summary presents the main findings of the research and the full report contains more information about the data, sources and indicators used.
The report will be of interest to policymakers and decision makers in central and local government and anyone interested in understanding more about England’s urban green spaces.
